Writing science as a master of science
« on: June 04, 2008, 09:17:30 AM »
Hello people!

I just registered to this site few minutes ago, so a newbie here :P

I graduated from the University of Helsinki last December with a masters degree in organic chemistry. Although I haven't gone into research (yet?), I am somewhat interested in writing and research. Yet I have a problem...

I would like to write and research some scientific and especially chemical topics to improve my skill of writing and research. I has been thinking about blogging, because then people could comment and criticize my writings.

I would like to ask you if this sounds like a good idea? How do bloggers get or come up with their topics? I don't have access to a wide variety of research papers, so my sources are limited. Do you have any idea how and where to find information about a certain topic?

Talk about what you know. You can see some of my chemistry blog postings here:

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

The problem with blogging is, it has to be interesting for people to read it.

You could try going here:

Finding journals in the field you are interested in, and finding topics that interest you, and the writing critics about them. See if that helps.
