TitleThe Rise of the Scientist-Bureaucrat : Survival Guide for Researchers in the 21st Century
Author(s)Perez Velazquez, Jose Luis
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXII, 104 p : online resource
Abstract Note"Perez Velazquez has written a little gem that I advise reading to anyone persuing a scientific career, as well as for the general public interested in the sociological aspects of science. It alerts the reader about the rise of a new type of scientist, buried in bureaucracy and financial issues. In contrast to past generations, this "new scientist" is sadly left with minimal time to dedicate to creative work. It studies the consequences of this state of affairs, the problems associated with peer reviewing, the dilemma of funding innovative research, the nature of corporate academic culture and the trivialization of scientific achievement by grant agencies and universities. It also provides possible solutions for these problems. All this is magnificently exemplified and documented, including personal experiences from the author and a touch of humor illustrated in the accompanying cartoons. Despite the humor, it is a serious piece of work that would also be useful for the conscientious academic worried about the difficulties of the current research scene. " Marina Frantseva, MD, PhD Jose Luis Perez Velazquez is a Spanish biochemist/biophysicist. He has a degree in Biochemistry and a PhD in Molecular Physiology & Biophysics. His research activities are mainly in the fields of the brain-behaviour relation at a high level of description, seeking principles of biological organisation. He worked as a senior scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and was Professor at the University of Toronto, where he taught a graduate course on consciousness and self-awareness, which derived in part from his book The Brain-Behaviour Continuum (World Scientific). He also edited the book Coordinated Activity in the Brain (Springer), and edited special issues for The Journal of Biological Physics, Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience and Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience. Currently he is a Research Scholar at the Ronin Institute, where he continues to investigate a possible global principle, a scheme that combines theoretical studies and experimental observations, aimed at conceptualizing how consciousness arises from the organization of matter

TitleThe Craft of Scientific Presentations : Critical Steps to Succeed and Critical Errors to Avoid
Author(s)Alley, Michael
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2013.
DescriptionXIX, 286 p. 59 illus., 53 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe Craft of Scientific Presentations, 2nd edition aims to strengthen you as a presenter of science and engineering. The book does so by identifying what makes excellent presenters such as Brian Cox, Jane Goodall, Richard Feynman, and Jill Bolte Taylor so strong. In addition, the book explains what causes so many scientific presentations to flounder. One of the most valuable contributions of this text is that it teaches the assertion-evidence approach to scientific presentations. Instead of building presentations, as most engineers and scientists do, on the weak foundation of topic phrases and bulleted lists, this assertion-evidence approach calls for building presentations on succinct message assertions supported by visual evidence. Unlike the commonly followed topic-subtopic approach that PowerPoint leads presenters to use, the assertion-evidence approach is solidly grounded in research. By showing the differences between strong and weak presentations, by identifying the errors that scientific presenters typically make, and by teaching a much more powerful approach for scientific presentations than what is commonly practiced, this book places you in a position to elevate your presentations to a high level. In essence, this book aims to have you not just succeed in your scientific presentations, but excel. About the Author Michael Alley has taught workshops on presentations to engineers and scientists on five continents, and has recently been invited to speak at the European Space Organization, Harvard Medical School, MIT, Sandia National Labs, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Simula Research Laboratory, and United Technologies. An Associate Professor of engineering communication at Pennsylvania State University, Alley is a leading researcher on the effectiveness of different designs for presentation slides

TitleThe Hands-On Guide for Science Communicators : A Step-by-Step Approach to Public Outreach
Author(s)Lindberg Christensen, Lars
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2007.
DescriptionXVI, 270 p : online resource
Abstract NoteLars Lindberg Christensen is a science communication specialist and works in Munich, Germany, as head of communication for the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in Europe. Many people know something about communication ??? it is after all an innate human ability ??? but a full comprehension of how to do science communication effectively is not acquired easily. This Guide touches upon all aspects of science communication, revealing a tightly interwoven fabric of issues: product types, target groups, written communication, visual communication, validation processes, practices of efficient workflow, distribution, promotion, advertising and much more. New science communicators will find this Guide both helpful and inspirational. "I am overwhelmed at how thorough and how well thought-through this book is. Even with my regular relationships with popular communication and with public relations officers, I hadn???t realized how well documented the field could be until I saw it done here." -Jay M. Pasachoff, Williams College, President, IAU Commission on Education and Development, author of The Cosmos: Astronomy in the New Millennium and The Complete Idiot???s Guide to the Sun "I would have expected a high standard from a public outreach scientist at the European Space Agency, but this soars way above the normal standard of competence. I have certainly learned a great deal from this guide. It deserves a wide readership among science communicators." -Simon Mitton, Author of Conflict in the Cosmos: Fred Hoyle???s Life in Science and Editor of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy" Christensen uses clear principles and well-chosen examples, along with tables, diagrams, and even a press release visibility scale to convey the art and science of Science Communication in an authoritative and illuminating manner." -Stephen P. Maran, Press Officer, AAS, Editor, The Astronomy and Astrophysics Encyclopedia "This book is very well presented, in a good-humored style, with an abundance of practical details. It is a fundamental contribution to the field of science communication towards the public. It is a filling a gap." -Andre Heck, Astronomer, Editor of Astronomy Communication and the Organization and Strategies in Astronomy series
