Writing a scientific article, conference paper, thesis, report, or research proposal is often one of the least popular parts of a scientist’s or student’s life. Many people have a lot of issues with writing these kind of papers, because you can’t simply put all your ideas on paper and hope for the best. If you want your paper or proposal to be successful, you will need to follow certain rules in addition to knowing your stuff. The best ideas won’t be helpful if the writing is bad, not structured the right way or even fails to provide the correct resources to avoid copyright issues. Fortunately, this new book will help everyone who needs to write any kind of scientific text. Drawing from long-time experience in academic teaching, the authors walk the readers through scientific writing step by step all the way from a blank first page to complete manuscripts.
A comprehensive list of recommendations and more than one hundred examples, taken from real-life scientific texts, offer readers of “Scientific Writing in Engineering” by Kay Smarsly and Kosmas Dragos the chance to draw easy analogies between their own scientific texts and the examples provided here. Readers will be able to enhance their knowledge on scientific text structuring and will learn to avoid pitfalls in use of English, including grammatical and syntactical phenomena. Readers are given the opportunity to handle non-textual elements in scientific writing, such as figures and mathematical equations and formulas. Finally, the book provides detailed discussions on citing and referencing along with recommendations on formal electronic correspondence.
