A McGill Guide to Scientific Writing

During summer 2020, MSWI collaborated with faculty members, TAs, and students to produce a concise guide to scientific writing. Especially with the upcoming virtual semester, our writing guide aims to help students and staff adjust to writing-centric assessments.

We have chapters dedicated to: 

  • Vocabulary

  • Research articles

  • Lab reports

  • Citations

  • Tables and figures

  • And more!
