"In short, this is a must-have book for writers, editors and account managers in medical communications agencies in the publications departments of research institutions and pharmaceutical and medical device companies. I also recommend it to my fellow freelance writers as an easy way to ensure that you are ‘on the same page’ as the companies that you are working with when it comes to disseminating medical research findings" Jane Tricker CMPP, Medical Writing

"Like its predecessors this update of Liz Wager’s book is presented concisely, pragmatically and with the inimitable down-to-earth and sharp-witted style familiar to many of us...this book is the source of "Everything You Need to Know About Medical Publishing but Were Afraid to Ask" and could well be one of the best bookshelf investments you make this year". – Moira A Hudson, European Science Editing Journal

"The 3rd edition of Getting Research Published successfully instructs in an authoritative, easy to use, and clear and concise manner."
—Howard Bauchner, MD, Editor in Chief, JAMA and The JAMA Network

"The first thing that strikes you about this book … is its sheer practical nature."
—Peter Thorpe, Independent consultant in information and communications management, European Science Editing Journal (of a previous edition)
