Abstract

In this essay, we comment on the inconsiderate nature of many science articles, and how this may have come about. From the questionnaire survey we present, it follows that many academic scientists in the past did not care much about writing style. Today, however, there is a growing movement aimed at making scientific text more readable.
Keywords: academic writing, academic writer, writing style, tone
