What information should you include in an abstract, and in what order? How can you get your message across in an oral presentation — with or without slides? How much text is acceptable on a poster? Communication is an integral part of the research you perform as a scientist and a crucial competence for a successful career, yet it is an activity you may not feel prepared for.
In this area of the site you will find dozens of resources to help you master scientific communication. If you are looking for a comprehensive coverage in the subject, you will find English Communication for Scientists quite useful. Organized as six self-contained units, this course will help you understand basic communication strategies and address various audiences (Unit 1); design and draft not only scientific papers (Unit 2) but also e-mail, résumés, and short reports (Unit 3); structure, support, and deliver oral presentations (Unit 4); create and present posters, chair sessions, and participate in panels (Unit 5); and prepare, run, and evaluate classroom sessions (Unit 6). If you are looking for help on particular topics, browse the list of selected entries from English Communication for Scientists.
