I recently posted a new video on my scientific writing channel. Although it’s focused on writing, the basic solution I suggest will work for any type of task that you may be putting off.
I previously created a how-to video explaining what graphical abstracts are and provided some examples, which can be seen here. In this video update, I cover three characteristics that will make your graphical abstract more effective and offer another example of how to craft one in PowerPoint.
I’ve posted another writing video on my Scientific Writing YouTube channel that focuses on preparation of a literature review. Whether you are writing a term paper, a thesis, a grant proposal, or an article for publication in a journal, you will need to include a literature review. In this video, I show how to conduct a literature search online and then how to organize and write a literature review for a research article.
I just posted another video to my Scientific Writing YouTube channel about how to read a scientific paper. If you are a researcher or plan to be, an important part of becoming a successful author of academic papers is being familiar with the literature in your field. This means you must read a lot of papers. In a new video, I describe a strategy that will help someone read a scientific paper efficiently and critically and to extract the essential information they need. I also briefly describe how to conduct a literature search and quickly identify papers to read in preparation for writing a class paper or an article for publication.
