Scientific presentations. What to do and what not to do.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

An effective scientific presentation requires skill, experience, and effort. In planning the presentation, a skilled speaker first forms clear conclusions through analysis of the data, then tailors the details of the proof of these conclusions to the interests and background of the audience. The facts and conclusions are presented in a practiced, specific, clear, and logical manner. It is not the topic or the data alone, but the sympathetic and strategic communication of the material to a particular audience that makes a meaningful presentation.
