We started this book by expressing the hope that by giving you a thorough working knowledge of how scientific writing works, you would feel confident enough to take control of your writing, and see yourself as a scientific writer. In order to do that, we led you through all the stages of producing a piece of written work, from deconstructing the question to dealing with feedback, providing background information along the way to help you understand how and why certain conventions are in place. Each section of the book, Understanding Scientific Writing, Preparing to Write, and Getting Down to Writing, was designed with practicality as the key principle: giving you information you could put into practice immediately. Central to our approach is reminding you that writing is a two-way street, with you at one end, and your reader at the other. Writing is about communication. Keeping in mind the principles behind all forms of good communication, clarity, concision, and coherence should help you to build the foundation of the development of your own writing style.
