9780643100466: Scientific Writing = Thinking in Words

Telling people about research is just as important as doing it. But many researchers, who, in all other respects, are competent scientists, are afraid of writing. They are wary of the unwritten rules, the unspoken dogma and the inexplicably complex style, all of which seem to pervade conventional thinking about scientific writing.

This book has been written to expose these phantoms as largely smoke and mirrors, and replace them with principles that make communicating research easier and encourage researchers to write confidently. It presents a way of thinking about writing that emulates the way good scientists think about research.

It concentrates on the structure of articles, rather than simply on grammar and syntax. So, it is an ideal reference for researchers preparing articles for scientific journals, posters, conference presentations, reviews and popular articles; for students preparing theses; and for researchers whose first language is not English.

Scientific Writing = Thinking in Words expounds principles that produce scientific articles in a wide range of disciplines that are focused, concise and, best of all, easy to write and read. As one senior scientist observed, “This book not only made me a better writer; it made me a better scientist”.

About the Author:

David Lindsay was a researcher and teacher in animal biology and behavior at the University of Western Australia for 33 years. He initiated courses in writing scientific papers and wrote A Guide to Scientific Writing in 1984. Now retired from active research, he teaches scientific writing to scientists all over the world.

Review:

"Lindsay has prepared a manual that guides students, step by step, in the writing of scientific papers. He organizes the volume into three major sections: Thinking About Your Writing; Writing About Your Thinking; and Thinking and Writing Beyond the Scientific Article. Each section has numerous subsections. The overall theme of his approach to science writing is 'be precise, brief, and clear,' which he repeats throughout his book. The book is worth recommending to graduate students, sums up the experience of journal editors, and will save a lot of frustration in the rewriting young scientists often experience because of poor writing habits." (Elof Axel Carlson, Stony Brook University The Quarterly Review of Biology)

"Scientific Writing = Thinking in Words provides a fine assessment of scientific writing and research, surveying unspoken dogma, unwritten rules, and the complexities of article structure. Any researcher preparing articles for scientific journals and reviews will find this packed with basic principles applicable to scientific articles in a range of disciplines." (Midwest Book Review)

"Lindsay's nitty-gritty guide to style and clarity covers all aspects of scientific writing for both text and oral presentation... This concise guide demonstrates through good and bad examples how a well-reasoned and well-expressed argument helps focus thinking to make a memorable impact. Highly Recommended." (Choice)

"...[S]hould be read by every scientist." (AMSA Bulletin)
