Sodal Charm Core Program – Volume I: The Art & Science of Storytelling
We all want our research to have an impact and to be cited by others. There are thousands of research articles published in our respective fields. How do we get someone to read our publications? This book shows you how to put your Title and Abstract into a story, along with the rest of your manuscript. Your research will stand out in a sea of peer-review publications, since it will be forged into a Scientific Story. As a research fellow in the laboratory of Professor Gerhard Wagner at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Luna was collaborating with four other top-notch laboratories in an interdisciplinary research effort to understand the end of the scanning mechanism required for protein synthesis in cells. They were sitting on a mound of research data collected by the various laboratories with varying expertise. This super-collaboration consisted of Physicists, Biologists, Structural Biologists, Biochemists, Chemists, a Computer Scientist, and a Chemical Engineer. There was so much data; yet they struggled to fashion a logical story for a peer-review publication. Dr. Luna was stuck. This book is written by an active research scientist, as a guide for other scientists doing research. This is how science should be written.
As a cancer research fellow at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Rafael E. Luna began to take creative writing, poetry, dramaturgy, acting and fiction courses at the Harvard University. Dr. Luna proceeded to implement the elements of storytelling into his research manuscripts and scientific seminars. In 2012, the first-author manuscript of his biomedical research in Cell Reports was fashioned into a Scientific Story before publication by the utilization of narrative tools. After the publication of his research story in a peer-review journal, he received many requests both international and domestic to speak about Scientific Storytelling, which led him to start an educational consulting firm named Luna Scientific Storytelling LLC. This company promotes oral and written communication of complicated scientific concepts using a logical, narrative format. Dr. Luna has given Scientific Storytelling workshops for a wide range of scientific audiences from senior faculty members to undergraduates in the U.S. and Europe. The Art of Scientific Storytelling: Transform Your Research Manuscript with a Step-By-Step Formula is the first ever book published on implementing the elements of narrative craft to guide the writing of a research manuscript for a peer-review journal. As an innovative approach to promote scientific education among scientists, Dr. Luna uses Scientific Storytelling to improve the communication of scientists in both their writing of scientific manuscripts and giving oral presentations on research. Dr. Luna hypothesizes that by teaching scientific concepts in the structure of stories; we tap into the cultural identity of every human being and inspire them to pursue careers as scientists or at the very least to appreciate the beauty of science.
