The lecture is the calling card of any researcher, providing them the opportunity to present their research findings, methods and even themselves to a wider audience. In such a lecture, it is not only content that matters, but how it is presented. Presentation skills are therefore essential to delivering a good academic lecture. This book deals concisely with the particular issues and needs of researchers when it comes to giving academic presentations. The book describes in great detail what researchers need to look out for in each section of their lecture.
