Scientific Writing and Communication. Papers, Proposals, and Presentations.

Scientific Writing and Communication. Publication Date - November 2019. 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. Ideal as a free-standing textbook for courses on writing in the biological sciences or as reference guide in laboratories, this indispensable handbook gives students the tools they need to succeed in their undergraduate science careers and beyond.

Scientific Writing and Communication: Papers, Proposals, and Presentations covers all the areas of scientific communication that a scientist needs to know and to master to successfully promote his or her research and career. This unique "all-in-one" handbook begins with a discussion of the basics of scientific writing style and composition and then applies these principles to writing research papers, review articles, grant proposals, research statements, and resumés as well as to preparing academic presentations and posters. FEATURES: A practical presentation carefully introduces such basic writing mechanics as word choice and word location, sentence structure, and paragraph organization before moving into manuscript planning and organizational strategies. Extensive hands-on guidance for composing scientific documents and presentations then follows. Relevant and multi-disciplinary examples taken from real research papers and grant proposals by writers ranging from students to Nobel Laureates illustrate clear technical writing as well as common mistakes that one should avoid. Examples are drawn from a broad range of scientific disciplines including medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry, ecology, geology, chemistry, engineering, and physics. Extensive end-of-chapter exercise sets provide the opportunity to review style and composition principles and encourage readers to apply them to their own writing. Writing guidelines and revision checklists warn scientists against common pitfalls and equip them with the most successful techniques to revise a scientific paper, review article, or grant proposal. Annotated text passages bring the writing principles and guidelines to life by applying them to real-world, relevant, and multidisciplinary examples. Clear, easy-to-follow writing style is understandable to both native and non-native English speakers; special ESL features address problems faced by non-native English speakers. Eight chapters on grant writing demonstrate how to write successful grant applications and how to avoid the most common application mistakes. Covering all the facets of communication that scientists need to master, Scientific Writing and Communication: Papers, Proposals, and Presentations is ideal for a wide range of readers--from upper-level undergraduates and graduate students to postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and professional researchers--in the life sciences, medicine, psychology, chemistry, and engineering.
I recently purchased this book while in the process of drafting a large research paper as part of my PhD Thesis. I found the book incredibly insightful and built in a way that permits useful practice of the techniques -- e.g. having assignments with answers is the way to teach scientific writing. I found found other texts, for instance "Style" by Williams, insightful, but not useful since there was no "feedback" to actually applying the concepts. Here, Hofmann becomes your instructor and you are given process based critiques on how to improve your writing.

As mentioned by other reviewers, there is an emphasis on biological sciences and some "hard coded" references to the typical principles to authorship, publication process, resource links, etc ... that are academic genre specific. These are, however, the types of things that a research adviser or other research mentor could easily correct. The book could be improved by removal of these topic specific references, but these do not distract from the overall impact of the book itself.

This is a great investment for writers of any age, but especially for pre-professional science students who are attempting to navigate between the writing they are taught in their required writing courses, the societal perception of science writing as thick or complex and their own abilities to understand and convey scientific information.
Have some good advice for new or non-native writers. There are some helpful check-lists at the end of each chapter. Most examples used are biomedical papers. There's no secret for writing, all the how-to-write books are similar. If you already have a similar book, or have taken a writing class, you probably don't need this one.

Great book for scientific writing. Especially good for biologists or other similar minded academics when it comes to writing NSF, NIH and other important grants. A must for anyone interested in writing better grants, from undergraduates to distinguished professors. Of the multiple books in this genera and this is by far the best organized and certainly the most up to date.
I bought the book as a reference for my Medical Writing Graduate Class. The book is word every penny, well organized and of special interest for English as a second language students. Highly Recommended AAA+++
I have several books on scientific writing, and writing in general, and this one by far is the most comprehensive. Must have, especially for a non-native English speaker like myself, working in life sciences in particular.
Helped me through the dark, dark times of thesis writing.
very useful. appreciated the tips for ESL writers.
