 Since, most of the time, we cannot watch, interact, participate, or study in other people's labs, on their computers, with them on their field work, and so forth as they conduct scientific investigations and experiments, we depend on the scientist's ability to report about the processes, environments, and methods used when investigating and experimenting. As a result, science depends on good scientific communication, and good scientific communication depends on documenting the steps, materials, and other activities and qualities that are a part of that process (and also on writing well). Since, most of the time, we cannot watch, interact, participate, or study in other people's labs, on their computers, with them on their field work, and so forth as they conduct scientific investigations and experiments, we depend on the scientist's ability to report about the processes, environments, and methods used when investigating and experimenting.
