How to Write a Good Scientific Paper

For the past 6 years, while serving as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS, I have been researching and writing articles on how to write a good scientific paper.  Recently I have turned that work into a book.  It has been published by SPIE, who is generously making the electronic version of the book available for free in order to widen its distribution and impact. You can find a pdf of the book here, which you are free to use and distribute as you see fit.  Information on the print version (which is for sale at a modest price) can be found here:

This short (100 page) book is full of practical advice that anyone who wants to write a scientific paper (beginner or experienced writer) can use.

  1. Hi Chris,

    I really like your book. In the past, I’ve listened to your material on my way to work. Would you ever consider creating a podcast or audio recording of each chapter?
