The HSLS Health Sciences E-Books page is a subject listing of the many e-books available to our users. One of our newer subject categories is “Writing and Research.” Currently, HSLS provides access to fourteen e-books in these areas. Included are two style guides, the AMA manual of Style and Citing Medicine: The NLM Style Guide, books that many writers find easier to use online than their print counterparts.
Two e-books on the practice of writing are Avoiding Plagiarism, Self-plagiarism, and other Questionable Writing Practices: A Guide to Ethical Writing by Miguel Roig and How to Write, Publish, & Present in the Health Sciences: A Guide for Clinicians & Laboratory Researchers by Thomas A. Lang.
E-books about clinical research and clinical trials include:
- Designing Clinical Research by Stephen B. Hulley
- Dictionary for Clinical Trials by Simon Day
- Essentials of Clinical Research by Stephen P. Glasser
- Good Clinical Practice: Standard Operating Procedures for Clinical Researchers by Josef Kolman, et al.

- Principles and Practice of Clinical Research by John I. Gallin, et al.

The e-books are on various platforms; some have a limited number of concurrent users, and for others HSLS has a site license. If you are turned away from using a book, try again; generally, the situation doesn’t last long. All of our e-books can be accessed in numerous ways:
