Abstract
Summary:
This book guides medical researchers through all stages of transforming their scientific data and ideas into a published paper. Many researchers in medicine, including the life sciences and health sciences, struggle to get their research written and published. Manuscripts are typically rejected and/or sent back for revisions several times before ever being published. One reason for this is that researchers have not received much instruction in the specific subjects and skills needed to write and publish scientific medical papers: research methodology, ethics, statistics, data visualization, writing, revising, and the practicalities of publishing.
Contents:
Chapter 1: Introduction; References; Chapter 2: The Ethical Foundations of Medical Scientific Writing; Introduction; Moral Vices and Virtues; Responding to Ethical Misconduct; Conclusion; References; Part I: Preparing; Chapter 3: Ethics of Conducting Research; Introduction; Ethics Committee Approval; Study Registration; Written Informed Consent and Animal Welfare; Following Ethical Guidelines; Conclusion; References; Chapter 4: Foresight; References; Chapter 5: Time; References; Chapter 6: Reading; References; Chapter 7: Searching the Literature; References

Lean Leader Development
Abstract
In The Lean Turnaround, this legendary business leader shares everything he has learned during his remarkable career and shows how anyone can achieve similar results. His primary message is this: Lean strategy isn't just for manufacturing. In fact, Byrne is using this very approach in his present position at a private equity firm.
Whatever type of company you run, Lean can be used to improve virtually every aspect of operations, from training and leading employees to accounting and payroll issues. The Lean Turnaround explains all the ins and outs of applying Lean strategy to:
Eliminate waste in every value-added operation
Deliver consistent value to customers
Stimulate growth and add jobs
Increase wealth for all your stakeholders
Build a company culture of continuous improvement (kaizen)
Instead of attempting to get customers to conform to your way of doing things--which is, sadly, what most managers are taught to do--you need to configure your company to be responsive to the customers. This is at the core of Byrne's method--and it always works.
