Want to edit science writing without a background in the sciences? This session will provide an overview of scholarly communication in the sciences, how science writing differs from writing in social science and the humanities, and tips on recognizing common mistakes and stylistic differences in students’ science writing. Library resources on this topic include How to write and publish a scientific paper ; Scientific writing and communication; and How to write and illustrate scientific papers.
