Books on sciences, engineering, medicine, nursing and research.
Scientific literature comprises scholarly publications that report original empirical and theoretical work in the natural and social sciences. Within an academic field, the scientific literature is often referred to as the literature. Academic publishing is the process of contributing the results of one's research to the literature, which often requires a peer-review process.
A technical book is a book that covers a technical topic. This mainly includes the physical sciences and engineering.
Reading Technical Books
- Schedule your reading time
- Schedule notetaking time
- If you have a choice, read a physical copy
- Find or create a quiet space
- Scan the text first
- Read selectively if you have to
- Try not to subvocalize words
- Write a summary when you've finished
Effective instructional programs and materials emphasize the five essential components of effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
The Canon of Medicine (c. 1000) - Described by Sir William Osler as a "medical bible" and "the most famous medical textbook ever written".
A medical manual is a literature (usually a book) describing diagnosis, treatment, management, and prognosis of various disorders.
- Agricultural Sciences - Agricultural science is a broad multidisciplinary field of biology that encompasses the parts of exact, natural, economic and social sciences that are used in the practice and understanding of agriculture. Professionals of agricultural science are called agricultural scientists or agriculturists.
- Astronomy - Astronomy is the study of everything in the universe beyond Earth's atmosphere. That includes objects we can see with our naked eyes, like the Sun , the Moon , the planets, and the stars . It also includes objects we can only see with telescopes or other instruments, like faraway galaxies and tiny particles.
- Cosmology - Field of study that brings together the natural sciences, particularly astronomy and physics, in a joint effort to understand the physical universe as a unified whole. If one looks up on a clear night, one will see that the sky is full of stars.
- Engineering & Technology
- Geology - Simply, geology is the study of the Earth. Generally, geologists study how the Earth works, both today and in the past. We like to think of geology as the 'liberal arts' of the sciences. That's because geology takes ideas from math, physics, chemistry, and biology and applies them to the Earth.
- Medicine - Study of the field of health and healing. It includes nurses, doctors, and various specialists. It covers diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, medical research, and many other aspects of health.
- Nursing - Includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of a safe environment, research, participation in shaping health policy and in patient and health systems management, and education are also key nursing roles.
- Technical Research & Development - Research and development (R&D) include activities that companies undertake to innovate and introduce new products and services. It is often the first stage in the development process. The goal is typically to take new products and services to market and add to the company's bottom line.
- Veterinary Science - Deals with the health and wellbeing of animals. Much like a medical degree, it covers everything from preventative care to psychological assessment to complex surgical procedures.
