Scientific research outcome are limited by a number of factors—one of them is science communication, that is, effectively sharing one’s research without being bias or limited by the language of communication (English). While universities and institutions equips us to be scientist, they place very little attention to communicating our findings with the aim to influence decision-making regarding, for instance, the country’s policy drafting.
As an organization, our well-designed workshops, particularly the scientific writing workshop, aims to create excellent female science ambassadors to pioneer in representing a modern scientist, who is equipped to accelerate innovative research outcomes.
We do this by engaging in many scientific writing forms, from a lab notebook to project reports, or from a paper in an academic journal to an article in a scientific magazine. Scientific writing is concerned with measurement and observation not opinion and supposition. This means that it tends not to use superlatives, comparatives or adverbs.
