While running experiments and collecting data are important things, they don’t contribute to science unless we write up the results and share them with our colleagues and the world.  This means that writing is arguably the most important thing scientists do—and it’s something for which most of us have little, if any, formal training.  And most of us need help with it!


I’ve written The Scientist’s Guide to Writing to provide some of that help.  Interested?  Please read more, and see links to order a copy, here.
