    21 Apr 2017 The Other Side of Scientific Writing: Increasing Reader Engagement and Readership

    Publications are the universal currency for communication among scientists. But they are generally composed of dense, uninspiring language that can be laborious to wade through and difficult to understand. While objectivity and scholarship are cornerstones of scientific writing, there is another ingredient that is rarely emphasised or taught: the accessibility of the prose, the X-factor that captures the reader’s imagination with clear and engaging messages. In this workshop, Zoë Doubleday and Sean Connell will explore how to increase the readability and readership of your writing to boost its influence.
