Intended for researchers in a variety of fields, this journal issue contains articles that provide guidance for technical writing for publication. Following an introduction, the first article explores some of the reasons papers are rejected by editors, including research design problems, lack of clarity and style, or unsuitability for the journal. The second article offers peer editing tips for professionals, specifically how to work with a partner and how to speed edit to assess a document's purpose, audience, scope, and structure. The third article offers seven specific guidelines for clearer, more precise prose writing. (HTH)
