A senior scientist in the Endocrine Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and a veteran medical writer, Andrea Gwosdow lays out a step-by-step instruction manual for writing research articles. She excels at breaking down the process into small chunks to help guide novices with little experience in putting together abstracts, posters, and manuscripts. A wealth of best practices tips and examples could buff essential skills for scientists at every level.
Each brief chapter lays out clear objectives and tasks for producing a specific section of a scientific manuscript. When assembled, the final article and poster should communicate important work clearly and will likely stand a much better chance of being published even in crowded fields. A final chapter offers valuable tips to help scientists present a poster and themselves at conferences in the best light possible.
Whether participating in a science fair, taking a capstone course, or writing up a first science research project for a class, students will find that this resource will help them develop a very organized and complete approach to their writing. Students can navigate this resource from the introductory Framework to the objectives for each chapter, and then to the details within each chapter as needed. Activities within each chapter assist students in reflecting on their own work and thought processes. In today's scientific playing field, young professionals often communicate their work through poster sessions in addition to scientific manuscripts. This resource provides chapters that address the poster style of communication.
The icing on this cake are the two appendices: a summary of all the writing guidelines; and an outline and manuscript template. Of course, there is a list of additional references for those who wish to dig deeper. If you are a teacher, this is a great resource to have on your desk and/or in your school library. If you are a parent, this is a great gift to help your young scientist blossom. If you are a scientist or science writer, make room for this guide on your bookshelf.
