Concurrent Session 3C Professional Development; How to spot and fix common problems with science writing

Unfortunately, much scientific material is written in a way that is not very interesting to read and is difficult to understand without rereading each sentence two or three times. With good editing, it doesn’t have to be like this! This interactive workshop will give you the tools to analyse your writing and improve it, using simple techniques that professional science editors use. By working on a real sample of your own writing at the workshop (or one supplied by the session presenter), you will practise these techniques and learn how to bring your writing to life.

Important Note; To help Malini plan, could you please email her on if you will be attending this session.
Also, please let her know if you’ll be bringing a sample of your own work, or if you need her to provide one for you.
