Authors: Martin Mkandawire (Dresden Univ. of Technology, Dresden, Germany) 
Book Description:
A critical aspect of the scientific process is the ability to communicate ideas and research results effectively to a large community of scientists. Thus, effective writing skills are essential to successful scientific careers because achievements are demonstrated through the number of scientific publications a scientist or an institution has. For most non-native English speaking contributors however, English is a real barrier to publishing their research work because their contributions are frequently rejected due to merely English language quality and not scientific content. Mostly affected are novices scientists and graduate students. As much as most of them strive to learn English, concurrent learning of regular and technical or scientific English hampers effective scientific writing skills. This book is needed to help those with limited English skills stand up to the challenge.
