In 2012, Kristin Sainani (of Stanford University) led a Coursera course on Scientific Writing. Thousands of students followed the course. It introduced many important topics about how to improve your scientific writing. Kristin has been kind enough to allow ClimateSnack to republish her lectures from this course. The lectures from part one look at how we can ‘cut the clutter’ and write more concisely.
