This is a collection of articles giving advice on topics that are important for almost all scientists- writing grant applications, writing papers, and giving talks.
The Art of Grantsmanship by Jacob Kraicer, hosted by the Human Frontiers Organisation but of relevance to any grant application:
How to Write a Research Grant Application- aimed at NIH grants but with valuable general advice too:
Writing a Good Grant Proposal by Alan Bundy and Simon Peyton Jones. This is from Edinburgh, but is aimed at ESPRC applications. Again, it contains much of relevance to biologists:
How Not to Kill a Grant Application by Vid Yohan-Ram. Very light-hearted and anecdotal, and therefore easy to read, albeit geared towards NIH applicants. Note that there are six parts.
A very good article published in Nature, full of useful nuggets of advice:
How to Give a Good Talk by Uri Alon, published in Molecular Cell:
A companion piece:
How to Give a Bad Talk by Deborah St James, published in Current Biology:
