Science Communication: The Scholarly Medium

B C Sharma (Author) R N Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The book provides an integrated view of various facets of scholarly science communication ranging from the stage of writing a research paper and presentation of scientific data to peer review, editorial processing of communications and to the stage of dissemination through journals. The characteristics of science writing and its unique features are clearly explained. The authors approach the subject in a systematic way using scores of examples to demonstrate the difference between effective and ineffective science writing. The paradigm shift taking place in science communication with the emergence of electronic journals and databases is adequately covered. Readers are specifically alerted about many subtle changes in the process of scholarly science communication being brought about by the Internet phenomenon. In this era of globalization, scholarly communication and intellectual property rights (IPRs) are intimately connected. A chapter has been devoted exclusively to the issues related to this interaction. Another chapter alerts the readers towards their ethical responsibilities as authors, reviewers and editors. The book aims to help both first time writers and experienced contributors in authoring effective research papers. It also covers issues of interest to information scientists and science editors. It can equally well be used as a text in courses on science writing and information science.
