The Art of Scientific Writing

“Science isn’t finished until it’s communicated”

-Sir Mark Walport

Also for researchers science is not complete until accepted. Be it any kind of scientific writing: manuscript, short communication, review, project proposal, patent etc., it is an art that comes out of expertise gained by a researcher apart from thinking of science. There are scientists who do excellent research are yet to be recognized due to poor communication, it is not the failure of science or researcher but lack of communication. The success of a problem is determined when the researcher is able to communicate, explain and defend the findings to outreach a common man’s application. For any type of scientific writing, a clear understanding is prerequisite, then segregation of content followed by structuring. It is necessary to first identify and be clear on the following: problem statement, objective, literature survey, novelty of the work and the importance or its relevance for application. Sketch an outline depending on the type you choose to write, the aforementioned subheadings and complete a first draft as early as possible. While drafting, precision and concision are important no matter the number of pages. It is better to use simple language and highlight the key scientific facts/points appropriately. Carefully analyse the difference between novelty/importance of the work and procrastination. Now take the role of a reader and check for the story, flow, logic and coherence. Get the feedback from a profession, revise, revise and revise.

Sometimes, if u choose to be a smart worker than hard worker, get professional help from scientific research solutions for the completeness of your excellent research.
