Essential Guide to Reading Biomedical Papers: Recognising and Interpreting Best Practice is a very useful book that goes beyond the title in some ways and doesn't quite approach it in others. This is not a guide to writing research papers, as some might expect. But in the process of helping people understand how to read research papers, this book covers a lot of information that would assist people who actually are conducting research. So this book really helps the reader understand various specialized research techniques. And as such, it is applicable to other scientific research areas where these techniques are used.

Areas that are covered include molecular, cell, organism and population approaches. This book focuses on the research techniques in each area that are used to produce experimental data. Even general statistics are covered. By understanding how research data is generated, readers can be better able to understand and validate the results as they are presented in the research.

This collection is geared towards recent post-graduates without extensive field experience. For those without extensive hands-on research experience, this primer covers more topics than most could employ in years of different research projects. Albeit each technique is covered at a high level, but with more than enough detail to understand how a given research project was conducted.

Each area is actually a separate research paper written by a separate person. As such, this is not a cohesive "how-to" guide but rather a collection of papers. At times it seems rather disjointed, and there is a lack of a standardized approach between the papers. This is still a very useful volume, but just know what to expect.

CONCLUSION

This is an extremely useful book that will be a valuable resource for anybody who has to read, understand and validate research papers. Each section is independent and the book lacks a cohesive unified approach. But it still covers most modern techniques. As such, it is a very good primer and I recommend it.

I was pleased as soon as I read the Preface and Introduction. The authors present science in its true form, rather than in some idealized, Hollywood fantasy version. That is rare in mainstream science books, although common in more "fringe" works like the works of Richard Milton.

The balanced view presented here does not flinch from the ugliness and deformities of science as we know it today. The authors are quick to point out the possible sources of error at such basic levels as statistics and experimental design, and it is clear that this book was written to educate, not pontificate. It is the best book from mainstream scientists I have read in a long time.

I chose this book because, while I am fairly bright and well-read, I am not a biomedical expert. I wanted to see if I could understand and learn from the book without being steeped in the field itself.

I am happy to say that the result was positive. I was able to turn at random in the book and follow a section with little difficulty (barring having to look up an occasional term). I think that anyone with a reasonable grasp of college-level biochemistry would have little difficulty understanding the material here.

The book is divided into sections, called "primers" and sections with specific details about experimental techniques and design in basic areas of biomedical research. While different sections were written by different authors, the book maintains a very level tone and style which makes for smooth reading.

On the whole, I find it a well done book and recommend it to anyone who would like to know more about experimental design, scientific method, specific biomedical techniques, etc.

Scientific papers for the biomedical audience often contain a wide array of errors, including incorrect inclusion criteria, incorrect outcome measures, poor selection of a gold standard control, and inadequate interpretation. This text explores some of the potential errors that can arise in the basic science world but does not move outside of that world. Within the text are treatises that investigate issues of basic science studies specifically within the realm of biology, but which do not go on to examine issues within the medical literature. The text is an excellent start, and perhaps the title of the book is where the problem lies: this is more of an essential guide to reading basic biologic papers rather than biomedical papers. The foreword reveals this, as it focuses on the issues of biological research, rather than on issues of biomedical research. I highly recommend this book to the basic scientist or to the student of epidemiology and statistical analysis, the latter in particular as the text reveals difficulties which can arise in the interpretation of basic science literature. But for the physician interested in exploring the inadequacies of the medical literature, I would recommend turning elsewhere.

The advent of evidence based medicine (EBM) as an essential part of practice has dragged medical practitioners (nurse practitioners (NP), physician assistants (PA), doctors (MD or DO) and pharmacists (RPh and/or PharmD)), some kicking and screaming, to the fount of medical publications. The practice of critical reading of journal articles is by no means trivial, starting with the hypothesis to the statistics and into the scientific discussion.

This book lends a helping hand to those in need in that it starts with the basics and then progresses to the discussion of the various types of Cell and Molecular studies and In vivo studies. This is not a book designed for the general public; any reader should have some prior exposure to medical journal articles and studies to fully grasp the purpose of this book.

Overall, the book seems like a good look-up reference for tips on how to read a particular study type, rather than a textbook or cover to cover read. P-)
