Item description for Scientific Writing: A Reader and Writer's Guide by Jean-luc Lebrun...

Given that scientific material can be hard to comprehend, sustained attention and memory retention become major reader challenges. Scientific writers must not only present their science, but also work hard to generate and sustain the interest of readers. Attention-getters, sentence progression, expectation-setting, and memory offloaders are essential devices to keep readers and reviewers engaged. The writer needs to have a clear understanding of the role played by each part of a paper, from its eye-catching title to its eye-opening conclusion. This book walks through the main parts of a paper; that is, those parts which create the critical first impression. The unique approach in this book is its focus on the reader rather than the writer. Senior scientists who supervise staff and postgraduates can use the book to review drafts and to help with the writing as well as the science. Young researchers can find solid guidelines that reduce the confusion all new writers face. Published scientists can finally move from what feels right to what is right, identifying mistakes they thought were acceptable, and fully appreciating their responsibility: to guide the reader along carefully laid-out reading tracks.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scientific Writing: A Reader and Writer's Guide?

Scientific Writing: A Reader and Writer's Guide  Apr 27, 2010
If you are looking for a good guide book on scientific reading and writing, this is the answer to your request. This book will guide you step by step in getting the best out of your findings. It highlights a whole new set of personal skills, which can be acquired. This book starts with a reading toolkit. This toolkit provides the recipe to sustain the reader's attention and ensure continuous reading. The hands-on techniques Lebrun proposes are clear, practical, and proven to produce results in terms of clarity, conciseness, fluidity, organization, and convincing power of your writing. What is also unique in this book, is the collection of real life fun-to-read stories that reinforce the learning process. The second part of the book is where the writing process is described following a suggestive metaphor: the abstract is the heart of a paper, visuals are its voice, etc. The creativity in this book is seen throughout, even in its index section where qualities of writing are the main index categories under which the various methods to achieve them are gathered.

To all I would say, this is the book for learning how good reading and good writing is. I truly enjoyed reading it, and refer to it frequently throughout my process of writing scientific articles. This book is the "translational toolkit" for good scientific data, from the bench to the readers.
