Lab Reports: A Concise Guide for Non-Native English Speakers

College students in the non-English-speaking world have to overcome formidable barriers in reading and writing when their medium of instruction is English. One particular problem faced by science majors is the writing of lab reports, a demanding task that might not be effectively supported by the standard guides and manuals available. This paper presents a new, very basic, no-frills guide aimed specifically at students in countries where English, although a second language, is also the language of instruction. The purpose of the guide is to provide an explicit structure to assist the user in presenting and communicating information in a clear and logical manner.
