Abstract

The content of the book have systematically been designed starting from history of Medical Writing, Designing/ Planning of a Scientific Study, Literature Search, Data Collection, Basic Statistics, Research Proposal for Funding, multi facets of Medical Writing, Authorship Guidelines, Peer Review, Scientific Misconduct and Predatory Journals. Each of these themes have been elaborated with various dimensions, width-wise and depth-wise. A due attention has also been focused on Medical Ethics wherever pertinent. Each chapter ends with a list of relevant reference to provide ready evidence and to give space of the researchers to explore it further. The inclusion of quotable quotes at places on a good article, rejection of a paper, clinical skills, pressure on an editor, medical editors, the editor’s passport to heaven, peer reviewers and the like have rendered the book palatable and digestible and provided a literary look (social science).
