Written by an academic author, editor and proofreader, this Guide to Academic and Scientific Publication provides practical, detailed advice on various aspects of planning, preparing, submitting and revising articles for publication in scholarly journals. Its chapters trace the process of producing an academic or scientific paper, starting with a discussion of the essential ingredients of a scholarly article – research, evidence and argument – and the necessity of producing a minimum publishable unit for a top-tier journal. The importance of targeting a reputable journal with the appropriate range, specialisation and impact is addressed, as is the need to make an article a perfect fit for the right journal.

The central chapters of the Guide deal with the preparation and presentation of academic and scientific articles according to conventional scholarly practices, style manuals and journal guidelines. The last chapter provides specific advice on dealing successfully with letters from editors, negotiating conditional reconsideration or acceptance, completing the necessary changes and resubmitting a revised paper. In the Appendix, sample letters illustrate approaches to writing to a journal editor when revisions and resubmission are required.

Focussing on sound scholarly practice as well as the expectations and requirements of academic and scientific journals, the Guide to Academic and Scientific Publication is suitable for use in a wide variety of disciplines, including the Social, Physical and Biological Sciences, the Humanities, Medicine, Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Law and Management.
