Comprehensibly structured, this guidebook is intended for scholars of various fields, especially Muslims. Alongside specific applications in Islamics, it first clarifies the notion of scientific research and scholarly writing. It then addresses the processes of collecting data and writing a research paper, section by section, from the Title to the Acknowledgments; emphasis is laid on documenting sources both in the text and the References section, with illustrations ranging from multivolume books to on-line documents. The book finally explores the publication process and debates on misconceptions from the religious viewpoint and on ungrammatical and other criticizable English uses.

The achievements of medieval Muslim scholars in the fields of philosophy, science and medicine are now well recognized, and Franz Rosenthal's work has been instrumental in helping us to understand these. In this third collection of his articles, he demonstrates the information to be gained from tracing the Greek roots of the science and medicine of the Islamic world in the Middle Ages. Of particular concern here are the Hellenistic or late Hellenistic authors such as Galen, Hippocrates or Ptolemy. These articles show how Muslim writers have preserved much that has been lost in the Greek and played a vital part in ensuring the continuity of the classical tradition, and examine some of the specific ways in which they reacted to and developed it.
