Tips for writing scientific articles

The author of the blog Academic English Solutions published some chapters from his latest book, on how to write a scientific article. For example, I didn’t know that the Materials and Methods section of a paper should be written in a passive form.

Another nice article with tips on how to write scientific papers has been published on Nature/jobs lately:

Good Practices for Bioinformaticians

In case you do not know it already, the authors of Software Carpentry, one of the best resources to learn programming for bioinformaticians, are preparing a new version. Keep an eye on their blog, for example one nice article that they have published lately is Five rules for a good bioinformatician

On the same period, Nature/news has published another article on the same line: Computational Science… Error


I have already talked about this, but Biostar is becoming a very nice resource for bioinformaticians who don’t know whom can answer a technical bioinformatics problem. Really, have a look at the questions already open and see if you can answer any! 🙂
