About the book

When conducting research work in life sciences, communication plays an important role (such as meetings, gatherings, reporting on experiments, telephoning, writing plan of approaches, reports, letters and emails).This book provides a number of guidelines.

There are plenty of guidelines on how to write text. There is also an abundance of literature (books, guides, websites) on how to write a thesis, how to communicate in business and good writing style. There are numerous resources for learning English. However, when it comes to writing, presenting, discussing science topics few useful work is available to students, and none in the area of laboratory research.

Dit boek is een vertaling in het Engels van de 4e druk van het boek Exact communiceren.
