Reading and Writing for the Sciences



Full course description

Studying science isn’t just about learning physics, biology or chemistry, it’s also about learning how to write up your discoveries in scientific reports.

While the particulars of scientific reports may differ between scientific disciplines, there are fundamentals in structure, purpose and style which occur across the sciences. Those fundamentals are covered in this course.

In this course, you will be introduced to a conservation scientist, Dr Ryan Witt, who takes you through his process of writing an experimental lab report: from experiment to final report and everything in between.

Ryan will show you:

  • How he gets started
  • How he chooses what scientific literature to read and how to read it
  • The conventions for writing:
    • Methods
    • Results
    • Discussions
    • Introductions
    • Abstracts and Titles

This course is appropriate for those entering science courses for the first time at either enabling or undergraduate level.
