About this book

Doing Science, second edition, offers a rare compendium of practical advice based on how working scientists pursue their craft. It covers each stage of research, from formulating questions and gathering data to developing experiments and analyzing results and finally to the many ways for presenting results. Drawing on his extensive experience both as a researcher and a research mentor, Ivan Valiela has written a lively and concise survey of everything a beginning scientist needs to know to succeed in the field. He includes chapters on scientific data, statistical methods, and experimental designs, and much of the book is devoted to presenting final results.

Doing Science has been completely updated and expanded to include a brand-new chapter on doing science in society, as well as increased coverage of the ethics of avoiding conflict of interest.

Contents

... university students of all stages, lecturers and eminent professors, research workers in general, book and journal editors, referees, and their would-be authors, could all benefit from reading this book and they should find it an enjoyable and informative experience. Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science Valiela's style is very readable, often enlivened by references to the history of science, and I found much that he had to say of interest. Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science Doing Science is aimed at the entire spectrum of those who might be engaged in, or contemplating, the practice of science - from students to their mentors and other professionals. Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science A goldmine. The Times Higher Education Supplement I recommend this book as a textbook to courses in universities all over the world. Photosynthetica
