Scientific Writing: Beyond Tips & Tricks
Judy Swan (bio)
March 4, 2013
In order to write clearly, we must understand how we read. In this workshop, we learned how to align with readers' expectations with Judy Swan, world-famous science writer and 2013 TEDxCMU speaker.
We have compiled the example sentences discussed in this workshop into a single document. The examples are not meant to stand alone; they contain everything needed to follow along with the workshop video (below). The document also includes Dr. Swan's handout of take-away points.
The day before her PCR seminar, Dr. Swan spoke at TEDxCMU, also about scientific writing.
