Before the talk

This workshop would aim to clarify the importance of using an easily readable and a graceful prose in journal papers, since the quality of the language used by many non-native speakers of English is depressing. Given that English today has emerged as a world language for science communication, we cannot take things lightly and thus lose the opportunity of making a mark in the world of science. I emphasize this because writing an intelligible and a graceful prose is as important as reporting new findings. We need to recognize that papers get rejected not because of the quality of science reported, but because of the poor language used in papers. The question we need to remember here is, ‘If the text is not clear to the reader, then what purpose does reporting new results serve?’
