Clear instructions are given on writing an empirical article, literature reviews, titles and abstracts, introductions, theories, hypotheses, methods and data analysis. Each part of the process is laid out from presenting results, to mapping-out a discussion and writing for referees. The integral skills of revising papers and ensuring a high impact are taught in 'article writing 101'. Whilst less intuitive knowledge is provided concerning publishing strategies, references, online submission, review systems, open access and ethical considerations.

This paper describes some shortcomings of manuscripts reporting research results and suggests ways in which new authors might improve their chances of publishing in psychological journals. Such manuscripts should, but sometimes do not, include the same steps as the research: what was studied, the formulation of the research questions, the design of the study, and the execution and outcome of the research. Authors need to be aware of common shortcomings in content and structure, errors in format, and errors resulting from inadequate proofreading. Authors should also recognize that many laborious steps usually follow initial manuscript preparation, both before and after submission to a journal. Suggestions are made to guide authors through these processes.

Health psychology is the study of psychological and behavioral processes in health, illness, and healthcare. It is concerned with understanding how psychological, behavioral, and cultural factors contribute to physical health and illness. Psychological factors can affect health directly. Health Psychology is concerned with understanding how biology, behavior, and social context influence health and illness. Health psychologists work alongside other medical professionals in clinical settings, work on behaviour change in public health promotion, teach at universities, and conduct research. For example, chronically occurring environmental stressors affecting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, cumulatively, can harm health. Health psychology also concerns itself with bettering the lives of individuals with terminal illness. When there is little hope of recovery, health psychologist therapists can improve the quality of life of the patient by helping the patient recover at least some of his or her psychological well-being. Health psychologists are also concerned with providing therapeutic services for the bereaved. The theoretical and conceptual input of the book in the health areas will prove quite beneficial for students and researchers whereas the ideas and research questions raised in the book will surely provoke the scientists for fulfilling heuristic function.

This book captures the diversity and richness of writing as it relates to different forms of abilities, skills, competencies, and expertise. Psychologists, educators, researchers, and practitioners in neighboring areas are interested in exploring how writing develops and in what manner this development can be fostered, but they lack a handy, unified, and comprehensive source of information to satisfy their interest. The goal of this book is to fill this void by reflecting on the phenomenon of writing from a developmental perspective. It contains an integrated set of chapters devoted to issues of writing: how writing develops, how it is and should be taught and how writing paths of development differ across writing genres. Specifically, the book addresses typologies of writing; pathways of the development of writing skills; stages of the development of writing; individual differences in the acquisition of writing skills; writing ability and disability; teaching writing; and the development and demonstration of expertise in writing.
