TIPS FOR TECHNICAL WRITERS


Here are some simple suggestions for the writer of a scientific paper, technical article, thesis, or other technical writing:

  • Attempt to avoid the use of run-on sentences. Try to keep the length of each sentence to one line and never more than two lines.

  • Use active verb forms when possible, rather than passive verb forms.

  • Keep your sentences simple, rather than complicated.

  • Vary the length of your sentences.

  • Use words that are in common use, rather than exotic or little-used words.

  • Similarly, use short words rather than long words.

  • Nouns and verbs are more important than adjectives and adverbs. Select your nouns and verbs carefully to add clarity and color.

  • Ensure that verbs agree with their subjects.

  • Minimize your use of abbreviations.

  • Capitalize only proper nouns.
