Q. Where can I get help with scientific writing?
A scientific report is the result of an investigation, experiment or research, that presents the findings in one document. You may be asked to write a short report of 1000 words, or you might undertake a research project of 20,000 words (or more).
Writing for scientific purposes calls for precision, clarity and a logical approach. To be able to write effectively you must be able to anticipate the needs of the reader and be able to make what can be a complex area easy to understand. Our study guides 'Scientific Report Writing' and 'Scientific Writing Skills' explain how a report is different from an essay and outlines what information you should include.
As you progress in your studies, you may be required to write a scientific paper. This is your opportunity to showcase the research you have carried out and demonstrate your skills as a researcher and writer to potential employers, fellow academics or funding bodies. This guide will show you how to plan your approach and have clear focus.
