A Computer-Mediated Scientific Writing Program.
Bowers, Roy
TESL-EJ, v1 n3 Mar 1995
Biologists at Center for Biological Research found ways to improve their scientific writing without benefit of an English-language program. By tapping Internet biology forums for comprehensible input, and using computer-assisted retention strategy to profit from error correction, writing improved. Scientific dialog on Internet has helped group realize that by writing more concise sentences they could reduce errors in scientific papers without conceding academic authority. (Author/JL)
