Scientific writing, is an indispensable step of the scientific process. The ability to effectively communicate research findings is crucial for success in the pharmaceutical sciences.
Graduate students are encouraged to publish early and often, and professional scientists are generally evaluated by the quantity of articles published and the number of citations those articles receive. It is therefore important that undergraduate and graduate students receive a solid foundation in scientific writing early in their academic careers.
