The third edition of Scientific Papers and Presentations has been thoroughly updated and covers the writing needs of scientists starting out in their career today. Examples include developing a relationship with their advisor, writing the thesis, grant writing, presenting findings, the impacts of social media, and working with corporate entities. Additionally, for both writing and speaking, Scientific Papers and Presentations emphasizes the audience, and also includes chapters on communicating with non-scientists and problems that could arise for the international student or scientist working with the culture and language of the United States.
