From the Back Cover:

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.

With convenient, easy-to-use chapters and written in a conversational tone, this book provides practical instruction. 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. Scientific Papers and Presentations is an essential guide for all graduate students and for career scientists including research scientists and science practitioners, especially those involved in Biology, Agriculture, Chemistry, Engineering or Health Sciences.

Communication skills are among the qualities most prized by those who hire and promote scientists. A few of the benefits of this book include:

Improving your skills for employability

Increasing your confidence in oral communication

Producing a thesis / journal article / proposal / review

Making your visual aids and presentations more effective

Constructing posters for scientific meetings

About the Author:

After teaching English composition and world literature, Martha Davis crossed the line between the humanities and the sciences. Always an aficionado of biology and gardening, her interests led her to the biological and agricultural sciences where she has worked for some 15 years mostly with graduate students relative to their communication skills in science. This handbook is the result of seeking answers to their questions and of recognizing that most other communication handbooks are limited to specific areas of writing or speaking. Scientific Papers and Presentations is her attempt to put under one cover the basic guidelines for the communication endeavors of the graduate student as well as the professional scientist.
