Title: Scientific Writing Strategies

Scientific Writing Strategies
Scientific Writing
  • As a scientist, you must excel at different
    skills, all at the same time. The lab work, data
    analysis, sitting in committees, faculty
    meetings, attending conferences and what not!
    Plus, publish papers and apply for grants. So,
    you are always under a tremendous pressure.
  • Its natural to get overwhelmed
    because scientific writing requires time, focus,
    and creativity.

Six strategies you can implement right now to
stay productive in your scientific writing
1) Get plenty of sleep
  • Though its hard to find more time to sleep, but
    being rested increases your productivity.
  • If you write with a tired mind, it will take
    longer and affect the quality of your document.
  • On the other hand, adequate sleep keeps you
    focused on your scientific paper writing.

2) Set your goals
  • Be clear about your immediate and ultimate goals
    see whether your writing project gets you closer
    to these goals.
  • Once you commit to a writing task, it means you
    say no to the other tasks. So, be mindful on how
    you spend your time.

3) Plan your writing
  • Include all the members of the writing project in
    the plan and agree on the deadlines.
  • Make sure the people whom you need feedback from
    will be available at the desired time.
  • Know how long it will take to complete the
    various tasks in scientific writing.

4) Give yourself deadlines
  • Deadlines keeps you focused towards work. Thats
    why they should be a part of your writing plan.
  • Besides the final deadline for submission,
    include several deadlines for the specific goals
    in your writing plan.

5) Find your ideal writing time
  • Getting up at 4 am every day and writing for two
    hours may seem ideal for some people, but not for
    many including you. So, dont pressurize
  • Try writing at different times of the day for two
    weeks and assess at what time you were most
    focused and efficient. 

6) Make a daily to-do list
  • Dont just write Write Paper in your to-do
    list. Instead, put the daily tasks of scientific
    writing that you will be able to finish that day.
  • For example, writing the discussion section,
    cross checking all references or
    proof-reading the results section etc.
