Writing About Research: Think Clarity!

The key to communication is clarity. Yet many authors struggle with clearly conveying methodologies, findings, and relevant implications when crafting research briefs or other types of scholarly manuscripts. This webinar focuses on strategies for avoiding common clarity-related issues in scholarly writingβ€”from obvious problems such as inadequate organization to more subtle errors such as impreciseness of language and omitted punctuation.

Although this session has a specific focus to the eXtension Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps the content may be applicable and interesting to others who are welcome to join.
