9780120884247: Scientific Papers and Presentations: Navigating Scientific Communication in Today's World

Electronic publishing and electronic means of text and data presentation have changed enormously since the first edition was first published in 1997. This second edition applies traditional principles to today's, modern techniques. In addition to substantial changes on the poster presentations and visual aids chapters, the chapter on proposal writing discusses in more detail grant writing proposals. A new chapter has also been dedicated to international students studying in the United States. It covers selected topics such as: Searching and Reviewing Scientific Literature; The Graduate Thesis; Publishing in Scientific Journals; Reviewing and Revising; Titles and Abstracts; Ethical and Legal Issues; Scientific Presentations; Communication without words; the Oral Presentation; and Poster Presentations.

Review:

...a wealth of information and detail. ...a useful guide to the student who wants a one-stop guide to communicating, an introduction and pointer to more detailed information for the more conscientious or needy student and should find a place in departmental libraries. -Dr. Jacqueline M. Atkinson, University of Glasgow, in CLINICAL CHEMISTRY AND LABORATORY MEDICINE (1999) Many alternative references are available, but this book would be my first choice for advanced college students, or graduate students, including medical students and residents. The book itself is an outstanding example of effective written communication. --DOODY PUBLISHING In reviewing a scientific book, the primary question is, will the book be useful? To be useful, the information in the book must be needed and the text must be comprehensible. Does Scientific Papers and Presentations meet these criteria? Yes, it does, is my conclusion. I read most of this book while attending a conference, and I can say that many of the presenters there would certainly have benefitted from reading it. Unfortunately, this was true of many of the 'seasoned professionals' as well as of the more junior scientists for whom this book is intended. Each time, presented data were either incomprehensible or uninterpretable. I made notes and then checked to see if a thorough knowledge of the material in this book could have improved (or in some cases salvaged) the presentation. The answer was always yes. --David Andrews in TIBS

About the Author:

After teaching English composition and world literature, Martha Davis crossed the line between the humanities and the sciences. Always an aficionado of biology and gardening, her interests led her to the biological and agricultural sciences where she has worked for some 15 years mostly with graduate students relative to their communication skills in science. This handbook is the result of seeking answers to their questions and of recognizing that most other communication handbooks are limited to specific areas of writing or speaking. Scientific Papers and Presentations is her attempt to put under one cover the basic guidelines for the communication endeavors of the graduate student as well as the professional scientist.
