Karin Knisely

  • ISBN-10: 1-319-12181-0; ISBN-13: 978-1-319-12181-5; Format: Paper Text, 224 pages

Karin Knisely’s indispensible handbook provides practical advice to students who are learning to write according to the conventions in biology, covering everything from reading technical literature and writing scientific papers, to preparing lab reports and making oral presentations of scientific findings. Since scientific communication requires unique competencies on the computer (for example, producing Greek letters and mathematical symbols), almost half of the handbook is devoted familiarizing students with helpful features in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint—features that are essential to professional quality scientific communication.
