Scientific style of writing


The style of scientific writing is characterized primarily by clarity, simplicity and grammar. Clarity in writing is obtained when ideas are presented without ambiguity, which guarantees the univocity (characteristic of what can only be interpreted one way); clarity is related to the knowledge domain that has particular subject.


Guidelines to prepare a scientific paper quality [1]:


1. Expose the ideas with clarity and objectivity.

2. Use direct language.

3. Compose simply, without slipping into the superfluous and without slipping into overly colloquial. Focus matter and particularize the points required for communication without using a wordy style, rhetorical or confused.

4. Use technical vocabulary only for what is necessary. Be nimble and precise in their use in order to prevent your text becomes hermetic.

5. Avoid writing long periods. Prefer short sentences.


The unit and precision are other features to be highlighted in drafting a scientific work. The unit is obtained when each part of the study leads to the next in a logical and orderly sequence of chapters and items of the same chapter. With this ordination, the text will also have the consistency of character. To achieve higher accuracy, it is necessary that each expression used translate, exactly, what you want to convey.
