Academic Writing in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Disciplines
This workshop will provide an overview of writing at a professional level in the sciences. The information discussed will apply equally to journal papers, dissertations, and other graduate level writing. We will cover drafting and revising techniques, discuss how to best target your audience, go over the structure of scientific writing, and focus — at a sentence and paragraph level — on what your reader needs from your writing.
Alan Hogg has taught at the Sweetland Center for Writing since 2008 and specializes in writing in the sciences. His PhD is in atmospheric chemistry, and he has worked in neurobiology and archaeological conservation. He is also a freelance science writer.
