院士哈金 (Ha Jin, Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences)的小说透露出一个信息，我曾经那么热爱的海明威，在中国被曲解误读，汉译本多不准确。《太阳照常升起》(The Sun Also Rises)的汉译失去了诙谐，文字中的游戏和玩笑莫名地消失了。"The strength of Science and its online journal sites rests with the strengths of its community of authors, who provide cutting-edge research, incisive scientific commentary, and insights on what’s important to the scientific world. To learn more about how to get published, you got prepared for writing in English" (Science)
Today most scientific publications take place between non-native English speakers. English writing is essential for advancing science and technology. What are the barriers of your writing English?
This group aims to help connecting senior with junior English writers. Our strategies are: (1) to write well needs to read well. Thus, we will pick up some excellent reading materials with our comment. (2) We'll help editing/correcting some English-written practice materials. (3) We'll organize some topics of interest. Our long-term goal is to establish a habit of daily writing in English because we believe that's the only way to write well. "Writing is a powerful form of prayer and meditation, connecting us with both to our insights and to a higher and deep level of our inner guidance" (Julia Cameron).
