Science Writing

This guide will help you with your science writing needs

Welcome to the Scientific Writing Guide!

" beginning writers (and scientists), you need to realize that writing skills are not mysterious gifts that some people possess and others do not. With steady practice and application, almost anybody can learn to perfect most writing skills. The more you write, the more you will master these skills, and the less anxiety you should experience in the process."

- Andrea A. Gilpin and Patricia Patchet-Golubev, in A Guide to Writing in the Sciences
