What You Need to Know about Information Flow in Research Writing: Editing Your Writing to Meet Reader Expectations


Monday, October 18, 2021


12:00pm - 2:00pm




We know good research writing when we see it. Skillful research writers understand their readers, guiding them through their texts so that the intended meaning is clear and reading is almost effortless. How do they do this? We may think that clarity is a matter of grammatical accuracy, but this is not enough to produce a well-written paper. Drawing on research on scientific writing, this interactive workshop will introduce you to how language and rhetorical strategies are used to guide readers through a text, to ensure that the logic is clear, and to meet reader expectations. These aspects of research writing will be brought to light through analysis and discussion of published biomedical papers.
