Thinking about your writing -- Writing about your thinking -- Thinking and writing beyond the scientific article.
David Lindsay was a researcher and teacher in animal biology and behaviour at the University of Western Australia for 33 years. He initiated courses in writing scientific papers and wrote A Guide to Scientific Writing in 1984. Now retired from active research, he teaches scientific writing to scientists all over the world.
"Lindsay has prepared a manual that guides students, step by step, in the writing of scientific papers. He organizes the volume into three major sections: Thinking About Your Writing; Writing About Your Thinking; and Thinking and Writing Beyond the Scientific Article. Each section has numerous subsections. The overall theme of his approach to science writing is 'be precise, brief, and clear, ' which he repeats throughout his book. The book is worth recommending to graduate students, sums up the experience of journal editors, and will save a lot of frustration in the rewriting young scientists often experience because of poor writing habits."--Elof Axel Carlson, Stony Brook University "The Quarterly Review of Biology "
