Electronic publishing and electronic means of text and data presentation have changed enormously since the first edition of this book was published in 1997. The third edition of Scientific Papers and Presentations applies traditional principles to today's modern techniques and the changing needs of up-and-coming academia. Topics include designing visual aids, writing first drafts, reviewing and revising, communicating clearly and concisely, adhering to stylistic principles, presenting data in tables and figures, dealing with ethical and legal issues, and relating science to the lay audience. This successful legacy title is an essential guide to professional communication, provides a wealth of information and detail and is a useful guide.
• Covers all aspects of communication for early scientists from research to thesis to presentations. • Discusses how to use multi-media effectively in presentations and communication • Includes an extensive appendices section with detailed examples for further guidance
Description:This is a guide to writing and communications. The first few chapters guide and explain in detail the organization of the communication, literature review, research proposal, and thesis; other chapters address editing and publishing, style, format, illustrations and tables, and types of communication.
Purpose:This book is intended to educate and assist beginning scientists in various forms of communication.
Audience:The intended audience is science graduate students, but this guide would also be useful for undergraduate science students, medical students, residents, postdoctoral students, and science scholars early in their careers.
Features:This book provides numerous examples to illustrate educational objectives about communication. Brief examples are presented in each chapter and more detailed examples in the appendices. All figures and illustrations are well done and contribute to the purpose of this book. Useful references are provided. For its purpose, this book rests more on its didactic content than on references or illustrations, and the content is complete and excellent.
Assessment:This book is outstanding in its clarity and quality. Every section is highly readable, well organized, and concise. The author provides a clear rationale for the methods she advocates. The examples and explanations suffice to help a beginner to develop effective communication skills and to help more experienced scientists become more effective in their communications. Many alternative references are available, butthis book would be my first choice for advanced college students or graduate students, including medical students and residents. The book itself is an outstanding example of effective written communication.
