Abstract

Scientific writing does not need to be turgid, dense text written for a handful of specialists. Indeed, authors should strive to present well-reasoned arguments using clear, accessible language for the audience. This chapter challenges us to write so that others will be able to grasp what we say through the approaches we take to writing the manuscript and the way we organize our writing.
