This book deals with technical writingwith an emphasis on how to write a thesis for a university degree or a research paper for publication in a journal. It teaches students, step by step through several examples, how to plan, organize, draft, develop and prepare such a document for presentation. The book gives, besides usage in grammar, a precise method of preparing a document simply, clearly and concisely, organizing it by going into the details of its front matter, main text and end matter and its subdivisions, without missing the finer details like figures, tables, equations, references, etc. It describes how to compile and locate the original sources and view the specific topic to be researched in the background of earlier contributions. It addresses issues related to identifying such authors and their writings through their names and affiliations, and abstracts of the work, etc. Some peripheral issues such as certificate and copyright have also been discussed. The book will be useful to students, engineers and scientists alike, helping them break the ice by removing their confusion, bewilderment and hesitation in technical writing. It would be a boon to the beginners, as it would help them understand quickly many of the steps of the technique of technical writing instead of learning the hard way from long experience, which the author has shared in this book with the prospective readers.
