Writing in the Sciences: Exploring Conventions of Scientific Discourse is an advanced science writing textbook grounded in the rhetoric of science, the sociology and history of science, and linguistics.
The book treats the major genres of writing in science and research: scientific research reports, grant proposals, conference papers and other professional presentations, and public communication, as well as the social, rhetorical, and ethical bases of these as scientific arguments.
Focusing not only on the distinctive features of these genres but also on how and why such texts are created by scientists, the book thus highlights the multiple genres of science writing as distinguished from technical writing and other professional writing domains.
In keeping with the goal of treating genres as they are used in various disciplines, the authors approach the task of teaching students in the sciences how to write in their chosen field in a descriptive rather than a prescriptive way. That is, rather than listing a generic set of prescriptive rules, the authors present general rhetorical concepts and heuristics that students can use to recognize and analyze the conventions actually used by scientists in their own fields, and to use these conventions effectively in their own writing.
Examples are drawn from a range of scientific disciplines, enabling students to recognize and place their own field's practices in the context of those of other disciplines. Such comparisons also provide the opportunity for instructors and students to identify common conventions in science, investigate variation across fields, and recognize relationships between the structure of a discipline's inquiry and the logic of its spoken, written, graphic, and digital texts.

A rhetorical, multi-disciplinary guide, Writing in the Sciences discusses the major genres of science writing including research reports, grant proposals, conference presentations, and a variety of forms of public communication. Multiple samples from real research cases illustrate a range of scientific disciplines and audiences for scientific research along with the corresponding differences in focus, arrangement, style, and other rhetorical dimensions. Comparisons among disciplines provide the opportunity for students to identify common conventions in science and investigate variation across fields.

A scientific paper is a written report describing original research results. The format of a scientific paper has been defined by centuries of developing tradition, editorial practice, scientific ethics and the interplay with printing and publishing services. A scientific paper should have, in proper order, a Title, Abstract.
According to Penrose and Katz (), the introduction of a scientific research report contains a review of the collective knowledge that gives rise.
