Early career researcher training: writing about your research in plain English

18 July 2012

Many biomedicalresearchers find it difficult to describe their work clearly and succinctly. Fair enough - it's complex work. Yet it is vital to be able to do so for necessities such as:

  • grant applications
  • reporting back to funding bodies
  • reporting back to employers
  • seeking funding from charities
  • promoting your research
  • promoting research generally
  • social situations.

By the end of the seminar we hope you will be able to:

  • describe your work in plain English
  • describe the reason you are doing this research
  • place this research in its social and scientific context.

Topics to include:

  • what is plain English?
  • what is jargon?
  • defining your audience
  • writing to impress

Presenters: Mark Ragg and Melissa Sweet
