Description - Write Like a Chemist by Marin S. Robinson

Meant as a companion to The ACS Style Guide, not a competitor, this book is an extraordinary resource for upper-level chemistry majors as well as graduate students faced with writing a journal article, a conference abstract, or a thesis. Full of prepared research projects and exercises, Write Like a Chemist provides expert instruction ideal for students from diverse backgrounds, including both native and nonnative speakers of English.

It is specifically designed to help students transition from the writing skills required in undergraduate lecture and laboratory classes to writing skills required by career chemists: a journal article, a scientific poster, and a research proposal. Each of these types of writing is directed toward a different audience, and writing for a journal requires a different writing style than writing a research proposal for the National Science Foundation. Thus to write like a chemist requires that one
learns to write for different audiences. This book assists young scientists in developing that essential writing skill.
