Self-Paced Scientific Writing Training

This series of 14 lessons and exercises was developed at the now defunct Center for Scientific Communication at Vanderbilt by Jessica Moore in 2010. It covers the structure of manuscripts and proposals, tips for making writing more efficient, and revision techniques to improve organization, logical flow, and sentence structure. Each lesson uses examples to illustrate how to make scientific writing easier to understand, and each exercise guides critique and revision of others’ writing or your own. Though some lessons refer to others, each is intended to stand alone; don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of content.
