Comprehensive. Practical. Your resource for life.
Practical and easy to use, Writing in the Biological Sciences: A Comprehensive Resource for Scientific Communication presents students with all of the techniques and information they need in order to communicate their scientific ideas, insights, and discoveries.
Angelika H. Hofmann introduces students to the underlying principles and guidelines of professional scientific writing and then teaches them how to apply these methods when composing essential forms of scientific writing and communication.
A practical organization first introduces the basics of scientific writing style and composition and then applies those principles to a wide range of forms of scientific communication.
Comprehensive coverage of all the main types of scientific communication provides undergraduate students with the tools they need in order to master lab reports, research papers, term papers, review articles, essay questions, proposals, oral presentations, posters, job and graduate school applications, and more.
Rich pedagogy gives students hands-on advice throughout. Pedagogical features include:
* Relevant examples drawn from real research papers, lab reports, term papers, essays, and other sources
* Writing guidelines and checklists for revisions
* Annotated text passages and sets of sample wording
* Extensive exercise sets with answers
* "Top 20 Tips" quick-reference guides for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
A Companion Website contains instructor's lecture slides and all images from the text in PowerPoint format (www.oup.com/us/hofmann).
Ideal as a free-standing textbook for courses on writing in the biological sciences--as well as an accompanying text or reference guide in courses and laboratories with writing-intensive components--this indispensable handbook gives students the tools they need to succeed in their undergraduate science careers and beyond.
