Preparation of Scientific and Technical Papers

Nature volume 139, page 217 (06 February 1937) | Download Citation



MANY useful hints on the composition of scientific papers, and methods of presenting observations and results logically and precisely, are given in this small volume. Much practice, combined with a sense of literary values, are required for the production of a scientific paper to satisfy all the canons of style which writers are expected to acknowledge. There are, however, many typographical and other conventions which every author should know; and it is particularly in guidance as to the use of these that this book will be helpful.
