This Web page provides links to resources that the publisher Elsevier has developed to help authors write and publish scientific papers. The resources include a video of a presentation titled "How to Write a World Class Paper", a PDF file of slides from a version of this presentation, and an "ask the editor" section containing editors' answers to questions. Although intended primarily for authors in pharmacology, these resources can help authors in many fields.
Written as a companion to Editing and Publication: A Training Manual (also in the AuthorAID Resource Library), this handbook provides guidance in planning and giving training courses on science editing and related subjects. It also includes exercises suitable for such courses. The handbook is easy to read.
Intended mainly for "editors and publication officers at research institutes and extension agencies" in developing countries, this easy-to-read manual contains much good advice. The chapters on editing are are especially good; some other parts, such as those on printing and photography, are now out of date, as the technology has changed since the manual appeared in 1991. This manual, published by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), was written by editor Ian Montagnes as part of a training project. It contains many examples from agriculture.
