How to Write a Paper 
6th Edition, February 2005
Introduction
This brief manual gives guidance in writing a paper about your research. Most of the advice applies equally to your thesis or towriting a research proposal. The content of the paper reflects thekind of work you have done: experimental, theoretical,computational. I have used, as a model, a typical Materials project:one combining experiment with modeling and computation toexplain some aspect of material behaviour.Sections 1 to 8 give guidelines for clear writing with brief examples. The Appendix contains longer examples of effectiveand ineffective writing. The manual is prescriptive—it has to be, if itis to be short. It is designed to help those struggling with their firstpaper, or those who have written several but find it difficult. Certainsections may seem to you to be elementary; they are therebecause, to others, they are not. Section 8, on Style, is open-ended, the starting point for more exciting things.
