TMDU Library Seminar
- FUNDAMENTALS OF SCIENCE WRITING : Grammar and Usage -
Grammar errors impede comprehension and create a poor impression of your work.
In addition, science writing has its own usage conventions, which can vary by discipline and journal.
Science writers hoping to be published in high-impact journals need to be aware of basic usage conventions in their field.
Fundamentals of Science Writing: Grammar and Usage covers the elements of grammar and usage that are most important in science writing, particularly for biomedical researchers.
