The Effective Scientist
What is an effective scientist? One who is successful by quantifiable standards, with many publications, citations, and students supervised? Yes, but there is much more. Truly effective scientists need to have influence beyond academia, usefully applying and marketing their research to non-scientists.
This book therefore takes an all-encompassing approach to improving the scientist's career. It begins by focusing on writing and publishing – a scientist's most important weapon in the academic arsenal. Part II covers the numerical and financial aspects of being an effective scientist, and Part III focuses on running a lab effectively. The book concludes discussing the more entertaining and philosophical aspects of being an effective scientist.
Little of this material is taught in university, but developing these skills is vital to maximise the chance of being effective. Written by a scientist for scientists, this practical and entertaining book is a must-read for every early career-scientist, regardless of specialty.
