This book is intended to be a primer for students of surgery who aspire to careers in academic surgery and surgical research. It provides a comprehensive distillation of all the essential components necessary for the conduct of surgical research, from planning to presentation and publication. The chapters are arranged in sequence to usher the reader through the entire method, thus encouraging and assisting the process to "work, finish, publish", and they provide both overviews and important practical details. There is particular emphasis on clear writing, tables, updating bibliography and the importance of a striking abstract. The book also deals with ethical issues, administrative hurdles, the avoidance of plagiarism, fraud and unnecessary publication. "Successful Surgical Research" is intended for both undergraduate and postgraduate researchers in medicine and surgery, and will also be useful to senior physicians who wish to update themselves with current research techniques. The Foreword is by Michael R.B. Keighley, Barling Prof of Surgery (Emeritus), University of Birmingham Medical School, UK. The Foreword is also by Dr Bruce E. Stabile, Prof of Surgery at David Geffen School of Medicine, University College of Los Angeles, USA.
