EDIT WITHOUT MERCY

Writing about your research is critical to your work as a scientist. But how do you clearly and effectively communicate all those complex scientific ideas? In this workshop, we will discuss how to achieve clarity in your scientific writing. We'll cover: 1) what grammatical features tend to make writing unclear, 2) how to develop a critical eye for recognizing when writing is weak, and 3) key strategies for targeting and editing unclear writing.

Their brevity can make them particularly challenging to write. This workshop will turn the challenge of writing a successful and effective research abstract into a manageable and writable task.
