Summary:
The need for clear communication without the possibility for misinterpretation is critical in today's scientific world.

Abstract:

The need for clear communication without the possibility for misinterpretation is critical in today's scientific world. While a failure to clearly state a scientific result might just mean the loss of a new technique or methodology, it could just as easily cause devastating results, such as a massive oil spill, a catastrophic transportation accident, or an uncontrolled epidemic.
