Writing Clear Science

Abstract

Many people struggle with the amount of time they take to complete a document. When writing about science it is easy to drift onto related topics in the researching, planning and writing stages. In this workshop Marina Hurley shows you how to stay on track and be more efficient at each stage of the writing process: researching, planning, writing and editing. Marina provides guidelines that improve your ability to record your thoughts, reduce distractions, plan your document and monitor your writing productivity.
