DescriptionThis interactive lecture explores the style of scientific writing for peer-reviewed journals. During the session participants discover the complex relationship between lucid and economical writing. Based on recent research by Biber and Gray (2010), much of what is often written about academic writing is turned on its head. You be the judge! Have scientists abbreviated their ideas and given up on clarity? Join us and learn about the issues! Join the debate!
