The 10 best books on writing a scientific paper

How to write a scientific paper - PostdocInUSA

As a postdoc and along all your scientific career, you are expected to share your research work with the scientific community in various forms: scientific papers, oral communications or poster presentations in conferences.

The most important of these forms is certainly to write a paper for peer-reviewed publication, which is a crucial part of the careers of all scientists in order to have their work recognised and possibly progress in their scientific career. Indeed, the number of papers you publish and their importance (as suggested by their impact factor) are often viewed as a reflection of your scientific achievements.

Thus, it is of high importance for early career scientists, and especially postdocs, to become effective writers as early as possible in their scientific career.
