A brief manual written by Mike Ashby of the Engineering Department, University of Cambridge. It is designed to help those struggling with their first paper, or those who have written several but find it difficult. It takes as a model a typical Materials project: one combining experiment with modelling and computation to explain some aspect of material behaviour. The manual deals with structure, style, register, punctuation and grammar.
