Message

A message is a discrete unit of communication intended by the source for consumption by some recipient or group of recipients. A message may be delivered by various means, including courier, telegraphy, carrier pigeon and electronic bus. A message can be the content of a broadcast. An interactive exchange of messages forms a conversation.
One example of a message is a press release, which may vary from a brief report or statement released by a public agency to commercial publicity material.
Message is a bottle: How to write a scientic paper that’s memorable.

Have you ever read a scientific paper only to find that later you cannot recall what the overall conclusion was? You might have vague memories of where the study was conducted and one or two graphs, but cannot say what the take home message was. You may be momentarily concerned, thinking you are slow – witted or suffering early dementia. But don’t worry. The reason you cannot repeat the main message of the paper you just read is because the author did not make it clear.

Avoid burying the lead:
I’ve reviewed hundreds of manuscripts over the past four decades and during that time have noticed the same writing mistakes made again and again- mostly by inexperienced writers, but also by those who should know better. One of the most serious errors to make when writing a scientic paper is to fail to clearly articulate what was found and why its important. Instead, the writer may offer a laundry list of results and a rambling discussion that doesn’t pin down a conclusion.

Answer your readers key questions:
I thus developed the habit of distilling my message before leaping into writing a paper or preparing a conference talk. My distillation process would begin with answering a few questions. Why did I conduct the study? What was the central question driving my study? What were my main findings? Why should people care? What was new or innovative? To answer these questions, I had to spent time pondering my results from every angle, especially if I had conducted multiple experiments and analysis. But this approach made it much easier to write my papers.

Understanding a messages subject and purpose:

All messages are about something and trying to do something. Whether you are reading an article, watching a commercial, or listening to a speech, you should think about the subject of the message and its purpose.

Your turn:

Analyze a message. Think of a message that you are currently studying. It might be a page in your text book, or a story that you have read, analyze the message by answering these questions.

What is the message about ( its subject) ?

What was the original sender trying to do with the message ( its purpose)?

Can you trust this message based on it’s subject and purpose?

Is the message now being used by another sender for a different reason? If so, what is the new purpose?

If you showed this message to someone else, what would be your purpose?
