About This Book

This unique self-help guide equips undergraduates, postgraduate students, and early career researchers within the sciences with transferrable communication skills that they can adapt and refer back to as they progress through their careers.

It provides practical guidance on how to best communicate science in a range of different settings. This book facilitates clear and concise communication in both academic scenarios and the workplace. It covers settings ranging from job interviews, through conference presentations, to explaining your research to the general public.

It is illustrated with first-hand experiences, top tips, and "dos and don'ts" to demonstrate best practices. It will also be a valuable guide for established academics who would like a refresher or a guide to new avenues of science communication, such as podcasts.

Key Features:

  • Written by an award-winning professional science journalist and broadcaster with 25 years' experience, including writing for national newspapers, devising and presenting programmes for BBC Radio 4, and being interviewed on radio, TV, video, and podcasts
  • Covers science communication in a broad range of settings including peer-to-peer, to your manager, at job interviews, and during media appearances
  • Includes advice from a range of experts who communicate professionally, including a radio producer, a TV presenter, actors and entertainers, and scientists
