A few months ago Scope carried the article (repeated below) about a new book
on science communication. The article has a link to download a free chapter
(which is a gem on science writing) for ASC members. You have to log-in as a
member to the ASC website, use this link to access the article,
http://www.asc.asn.au/2010/03/open-science-preview/, and then use the link
to the chapter. 

 

Not only is the chapter worth a read but so is the rest of the book. 

 

I'm repeating this message to remind members (including myself) that they
will need to log-in to the ASC website to post articles to the website and
to access occasional members-only items. So much to remember and so easy to
forget.

 

Whether you tweet, YouTube, Facebook, blog, email, print or speak about your
science you need a well constructed and clear message to communicate
effectively.

For tips on good science writing read an ASC members-only preview chapter
from Julian Cribb and Tjempaka Sari's new book, Open Science: Sharing
Knowledge in the Global Century
<http://www.asc.asn.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Open-Science-Ch2.pdf>
(link available to ASC members after log-in to ASC website).

This book offers practical ways to communicate science in a highly networked
world flooded with information yet thirsting for knowledge. My thanks to
Julian for providing this free taste of his book.

Copies of "Open Science" by Julian Cribb and Tjempaka Sari may be ordered
from CSIRO Publishing: http://www.publish.csiro.au/nid/20/pid/6195.htm
