Technical Writing and Publishing
As engineering researchers, we need to write things down. New knowledge is something that can be written down and can be read by someone else. Writing communicates thoughts and ideas and, of course, new knowledge. A researcher is seen by the community primarily through writing. A researcher would want people to engage with the output of the work, new knowledge, and they do that through what has been written. Writing is not only about communicating ideas, writing is also part of the creative discovery process. Writing is not something that should take place at the end when everything else is done. It is an integral part of the research process.
