A Brief Point on Science Communication

Posted in Uncategorized on June 1, 2015 by angiegiegie

This article highlights the value of scientific writing which many fail to remember based on a book by William Zinsser. Instead of listing down jargon phrases and expecting people to comprehend us immediately, we need to look at science communication as an inverse pyramid where we give a brief overview of what they should anticipate. This is also how people write in non fiction literature. In this way, we do not only encourage the reader to explore more about the topic behind a given article but to also let them elucidate little by little on what’s written, giving hints of light at the end of the tunnel.
