Skill Sets for Successful Scientific Communication (PDF 242 KB)

Four experienced scientific communicators discuss these topics:
* You want me to write an article about what? How to research technical topics you know nothing about. This presentation gives you tools and techniques to pull a readable story out of the thicket of dense data.
* Interviewing subject matter experts: how to snag those all-important interviewees and what to do when you’ve got them. Find out how to work your way to the right person, effectively bring your own background and experience to bear on the interview, and line up the appropriate questions that get you pivotal information in the interview.
* Toolkits for medical editors: the skills and references needed to edit articles for publication in scientific journals. Today’s science editor increasingly works in a realm of macros, mark-up languages, and specialized print and online references. This presentation introduces the skills and tools of the contemporary science editor.
* The grant money ends when? How to keep the funding flowing. This presentation introduces a range of crucial grant-writing tasks, from schmoozing with funders so that you learn what they really support, to making sure proposal pages are printed in the correct format.

Marketing Communications—Yes, You Can Do It!

From the STC 2002 Region 7 Conference Hosted by STC Canada West Coast:

This session is aimed at helping you take your technical communication abilities and use them to create better marketing communications. You’ve already developed audience analysis skills; now use them in a different way, with perhaps different audiences, to develop marcomm content. You use the classic questions of Who, What, When, Where, and How to help you take your techcomm copy and transform it into marcomm copy that, to put it simply, sells.

Whether simply publishing a manual in print and HTML, or building a complete knowledge management system, structured writing is key to the project’s success. In this session, a consultant specializing in structured documentation explains the benefits of structured writing, and leads you through the steps of implementing and using a structured writing approach.
