English Communication for Scientists

February 18, 2011 Filed under Blog, Featured, Posters, Presentations, Resources, Writing 


The journal Nature has on its Scitable page a link to an online book English Communication for Scientists by Dr. Jean-luc Doumont (that’s him on the right). I haven’t read through it all, but it seems to have mostly good advice, albeit a bit short. The online book has six units:

Communicating as a Scientist

Writing Scientific Papers

Writing Correspondence

Giving Oral Presentations

Interacting during Conference Sessions

Communicating in the Classroom

After each section, there is a quiz and a set of learning activities to get you thinking and applying the lessons in real practice. Clever!
