2015 Writing Clear Science Workshops


*What we teach:*

We teach how to write clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing
scientific accuracy.

We teach you how to get your thoughts down clearly and how to increase your
efficiency as a writer. We teach how to write and design documents
according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g.
monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project
problem that needs to be solved.

We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare
reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a
research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we
conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to
improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review
