About this book

There are many types of scientific communication, the principal ones being written papers in journals and popular science articles, as well as oral and poster presentations at scientific meetings. In all cases, the ABC of science communication is that it should be Accurate and Audience adapted, Brief, and Clear. The aim of this book is to provide guidelines for preparing papers and presentations so that your message can be transmitted clearly and concisely to the reader or listener. Techniques for improving your writing, literature searching and training students in communication are also discussed.

This book should be required reading for all students whose degrees or professions will involve presenting scientific results in writing or orally. The topic is so important and the book so competent, it will quickly attract a grateful readership of students, research scientists and teachers. It is well overdue and well done.
