Writing Scientific Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders is a comprehensive guide to the preparation and publication of research papers for researchers in communication sciences and disorders. Individual chapters address the structure, content and style of the Introduction, Method, Results, and Discussion sections. The balance of the text is taken up with the writing process, including the nuts and bolts of preparing tables and graphs, detailed discussion of different voices and grammar issues, how to edit your own work, how to work with editors and peer reviewers, and how to get started and be a productive writer. Each topic is illustrated with informative examples, with a clear, direct, and often humorous discussion of what makes them good or bad.

Writing is essential in nearly every profession and particularly in communication disorders and sciences, where researchers must be able to express complex ideas to a variety of audiences, from colleagues to members of health care teams to clients and family members. This is why competence in written expression is required for certification and entry into clinical practice in communication disorders and sciences.

Writing Scientific Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders will be a valuable supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate students in courses that include writing assignments and critical assessment of research literature, such as research methods and evidence-based clinical methods courses, as well as in thesis and dissertation preparation. Researchers looking for a guide to help them improve their own writing will find it an invaluable resource to answer the big and little questions that constantly arise in preparing manuscripts.
