Oxford University Press is proud to announce the first edition of Writing in the Biological Sciences: A Comprehensive Guide to Scientific Communication by Angelika H. Hofmann. This new text teaches students how to practice writing and thinking
in the sciences and lets them learn by example from the writings of others. Through extensive and annotated practical examples and easy-to-understand and easy-to-remember principles and guidelines, the book explains how to write clearly as a scientific author and how to recognize shortcomings in one’s own writing. It does so not only by providing crucial knowledge about the structure and delivery of written material but also by explaining how readers go about reading. Furthermore, potential problem areas in written and oral presentations are pointed out, and many examples are provided for wording certain sections in research papers, grant proposals, or scientific talks.
We invite you to familiarize yourself with the resources on this website and to request an exam copy of the book. We’re glad to receive any comments you might have, and we thank you for your visit!
