Self-Publishing Central / How To Write A Scientific Paper

I've distilled over 20 years of experience editing medical and engineering papers into 7000 words. The vast majority of these papers have been published in peer-reviewed journals.

My question is, how would you promote such a product?

If you'll forgive me for one bit of shameless self-promotion, I won't let it happen again.

That's all folks.

Another free ebook that you don't even have to visit my website to pick up, if you just right-click and save it to your computer. Really, it just proves that I'm too lazy to answer the same questions again and again and again...  :)

Oh, and you can publish anything you want in your own newsletter, on your website, whatever.

When Mamie Jo Hill was a young virgin, a doctor assured her she could never get pregnant. After seeing her firstborn son, she wished he’d been right. Little Michael was dumb as a brick, and he had a face that could sink 1000 ships, a face that could make a freight train take a dirt road. A quick peek at will establish that, unlike a fine wine, I have not improved with age.

As I got older, I learned to compensate for my lack of ability by BSing my way through life. 1982 WHO’S WHO IN AMERICAN WRITING. Four books published in 2002, one in 2004, another in 2005. Three EPPIE finalists. Won some Reviewer’s Choice Awards at Sime~Gen. One of WRITERS DIGEST’s Top 101 Websites For Writers. And all without a lick of talent.

Now I teach English in China, where I can BS to my heart’s content.

But I’m not all bad. My cat really loves me. My wife loves me too, but she doesn’t know any better because she’s Australian.

{Update: We moved to Thailand in 2006 and I quit teaching, but I still BS to my heart’s content.}
