OK, Write It but No Chemistry Words!
School Science Review, v95 n350 p63-65 Sep 2013
We would like the general public to be able to make informed choices about issues that involve chemicals and which impact on personal lifestyle and even national policy. Helping them make the right decisions requires chemists to become more articulate. Here is an account of a chemist who started his career writing articles for scientific journals and eventually became an author of popular science articles and books. His experiences are recounted as a guide to others who might like to try this activity. What topics should you write about? How should you write about them? And how should you go about getting them published?
