Editing for language and avoiding ambiguity in data presentation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Performing experiments is only part of the job, accurately interpreting the findings and then presenting them appropriately is just as important, if not, more so.
The first step to editing is to plan the structure of the text, tables and figures in terms of the flow of the document.
If the researcher lacks formal writing skills in the language in which the document is prepared, then seeking help from professional editing services is suggested.
The keys to avoiding ambiguity when dealing with quantitative and qualitative data are to keep an open mind when performing research and interpreting the results, and to subject one’s findings to informal peer review before writing them up.
Courses on how to edit documents are available. Attending these course is recommended.
