Books for Christmas for the science worker

The publisher Wiley just advertised for Christmas about “essential titles no scientists should live without”.

“Scientists”, so must be very general topics. I clicked on the link and found titles that were really very interesting and in fact quite timely for me (as an early career researcher).

Two that are available from Wiley’s electronic library and NUS’s libraries have subscribed to them:

  • Prosanta Chakrabarty. 2012. A Guide to Academia: Getting into and Surviving Grad School, Postdocs, and a Research Job.
  • Irene Hames. 2007. Peer Review and Manuscript Management in Scientific Journals: Guidelines for Good Practice.

One more from the electronic library that NUS’s libraries haven’t subscribed to:

  • Sundar A. Christopher. 2011. Navigating Graduate School and Beyond: A Career Guide for Graduate Students and a Must Read for Every Advisor.

A book available as a physical copy in the NUS libraries:

  • Margaret Cargill, Patrick O’Connor. 2013. Writing Scientific Research Articles: Strategy and Steps.

And more that I would like to leaf through one day:

  • Alaina G. Levine. 2015. Networking for Nerds: Find, Access and Land Hidden Game-Changing Career Opportunities Everywhere.
  • Laura Bowater, Kay Yeoman. 2012. Science Communication – A Practical Guide for Scientists.
  • C. Philip Wheater, James R. Bell, Penny A. Cook. 2011. Practical Field Ecology: A Project Guide.
