Date: April 01, 2015
The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) Director, Stephen I. Katz speaks to the importance of clear communication in his most recent NIAMS letter. He says, “Some people have the misconception that plain language appears unprofessional or less accurate. On the contrary, it tells your audience exactly what they need to know without using unnecessary or scientific technical jargon.” Dr. Katz’s letter can be applied across all scientific fields and is the starting point for important discussions on how science should be communicated.
