Writing Science

How to Write Papers That Get Cited and Proposals That Get Funded

Description of the book

As a scientist, you are a professional writer: your career is built on successful proposals and papers. Success isn't defined by getting papers into print, but by getting them into the reader's consciousness. Writing Science is built upon the idea that successful science writing tells a story. It uses that insight to discuss how to write more effectively. Integrating lessons from other genres of writing with those from author Joshua Schimel's years of experience as author, reviewer, and editor, this book shows scientists and students how to present their research in a way that is clear and that will maximize reader comprehension.
