Academic Writing

In order for scientists to present their finding as efficiently as possible, they should be able to communicate well. These materials/course would be extraordinarily helpful for improving academic writing skills:

  1. "Writing in the Sciences" lectured by Professor Kristin Sainani is an amazing course available on coursera

  2. Take a look at and you'd find many essays providing you with writing tips and techniques

  3. You also can subscribe on David Perell's website to receive writing tips via email or follow him on Twitter
