The purpose of scientific writing is not the mere presentation of information and research results, but rather its actual communication. It is not only about converting the right data into sentences and paragraphs; it matters only when other scientists gain value from your efforts and when the scientific discourse triggers a wave of discussions and subsequent experimentation. To achieve this, we will discuss aspects of scientific writing style and structure – keeping reader expectations in mind.
