This blog helps the scientist who presents learn new skills. It complements the book “When the scientist presents”.
Comments and questions are welcome, just email me: whenthescientistpresents @ gmail dot com.
I also keep the following pages: 1) the SCOOP.IT page on Presentation Skills I curate https://www.scoop.it/t/scientific-presentation-skills; 2) podcasts featuring interviews with top presenters https://scientific-presentations.com/?feed=podcast ; 3) The free tool to assess the quality of your scientific pape ; (More details on SWAN? See rest of post)
SWAN, a tool I designed, is based on the techniques described in “Scientific Writing 2.0: A reader and writer’s guide” (World Scientific Publishing) reviewed by Chemistry World. https://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/Issues/2012/February/Reviews/scientific-writing-papers.asp. My friends from the University of Joensuu in Finland implemented this tool in Java. SWAN (Scientific Writing AssistaNt) will help you identify whether your scientific paper is written in a way that will enable the reviewer to appreciate your contribution.
