About this book

Introduction

What started out as a communications workshop tailored for undergraduate and graduate students in atmospheric science evolved into a book that will benefit scientists at any stage in their careers. Eloquent Science draws on Schultz’s experience as a journal editor and prolific writer, the insight of his colleagues, and the best advice from hundreds of sources. This must-have reference is loaded with tips for writing and reviewing scientific journal articles and creating and delivering scientific presentations, and features: Help for the entire writing process from planning to proofing, including dealing with writer’s block, creating effective figures, advice for non-native speakers of English, and an appendix of commonly misused scientific concepts; A peek behind the curtain into the operations of editorial boards and publishers of scientific journals—helpful whether writing your own review or responding to someone else’s; Guidance on getting your conference abstract accepted, making effective slides and poster presentations, and presenting with confidence; and sidebars written by experts on topics including citing others’ work, how to critique a scientific paper, answering questions at a conference, and communicating with the media. The result is the ultimate communications manual for undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers in the atmospheric sciences and intersecting disciplines. Every student, teacher, and science department should have a copy.
