>>> NATURE Scitable: English Communication for Scientists

English Communication for Scientists is a brief guide on how to communicate more effectively in English.

Although it was developed with non-native speakers of English in mind, it should prove useful for native speakers, too.

Created by seasoned communicators, English Communication for Scientists provides no-nonsense, directly applicable guidelines, illustrated with examples of written documents, oral presentations, and more.


Unit 1: Communicating as a ScientistThis first unit will help you understand what makes communication effective and will help you identify your purpose and analyze your audience in terms of its level of specialization. It then proposes basic strategies to address less specialized audiences and mixed audiences, whether orally or in writing.

Unit 2: Writing Scientific Papers

Unit 3: Writing Correspondence

Unit 4: Giving Oral Presentations

Unit 5: Interacting During Conferences Sessions

Unit 6: Communicating in the Classroom
