SCIENTIFIC PAPERS AND PRESENTATIONS, Third Edition
by Martha Davis, Kaaron J. Davis & Marion M. Dunagan
2012, 342 pages. This guide covers the writing needs of scientists starting out in their career: developing a relationship with their advisor, writing the thesis, grant writing, presenting findings, the impacts of social media, and working with corporate entities. Electronic publishing and electronic means of text and data presentation have changed enormously in the last decade. The most recent edition of this book 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. The book discusses how to use multi-media effectively in presentations and communication, and includes an extensive appendices section with detailed examples for further guidance.
This successful legacy title is an essential guide to professional communication, provides a wealth of information and detail and is a useful resource for students and researchers. Paperback; 6 x 9″.
