  41. Scientific Writing, HRP 214 Some Notes on Science Style Following are some general guidelines on preferred style for manuscripts submitted to Science: • Avoid jargon; explain obscure terms and define acronyms (keep in mind that many potential readers of your work will not be specialists in your field). • Use active voice when suitable, particularly when necessary for correct syntax (e.g., "To address this possibility, we constructed a lZap library . . .," not "To address this possibility, a lZap library was constructed . . ."). • Write concisely (e.g., "even though," not "in spite of the fact that").

  42. Scientific Writing, HRP 214Sentence-editing warm-up… Recent research suggests that these two disorders may not be as distinct as previously was thought and the degree of overlap may be considerable.

  43. Scientific Writing, HRP 214Sentence-editing warm-up… Possible rewrite… Recent research suggests that these two disorders may overlap considerably.

  44. Scientific Writing, HRP 214Sentence-editing warm-up… The study of Barrett et al. (1997) is considered to be methodologically sound. In that study, 1,000 bacteria were transformed with the novel gene.

  45. Scientific Writing, HRP 214Sentence-editing warm-up… Possible rewrites… In a methodologically sound study by Barret et al. (1997), 1,000 bacteria were transformed with the novel gene. (passive voice) Using sound methods, Barret et al. (1997), transformed 1,000 bacteria with the novel gene. (active voice)

  46. Scientific Writing, HRP 214MORE WARM-UP • 1. A progressive decrease in the death rate occurred. • The death rate progressively decreased. 2. These agents exert their action by inhibition of synthesis of cholesterol by the liver. • These agents inhibit cholesterol synthesis by the liver.

  47. Scientific Writing, HRP 214WARM-UP 3. There are many scientists who don’t like to write. • Many scientists don’t like to write. • In classic epidemiology, the case-control can provide efficiencies when the occurrence of disease in the population is relatively rare.  In classic epidemiology, the case-control study is efficient for rare diseases.

  48. Scientific Writing, HRP 214 • Lecture Three: Punctuation, Parallelism, and the Good Sentence.

  49. Scientific Writing, HRP 214 For those of you reading Sin and Syntax…(from Salon magazine) • Rather than a beepOr a rude error message,These words: “File not found.” • A crash reducesYour expensive computerTo a simple stone.

  50. Scientific Writing, HRP 214 • The code was willing,It considered your request,But the chips were weak. • Errors have occurred.We won't tell you where or why.Lazy programmers.
