MVM learning: Research and writing skills for veterinary master’s students is a blog run by Liz Norman, Director of the Master of Veterinary Medicine programme at Massey University in New Zealand. She collects a lot of useful resources in the blog, both for vets and for any postgrad.
Liz recommends the Research Degree Voodoo blog post about ‘Effective Signposting’ (the one with the taxis, for old fans!).
Later, once you have this restructuring done, you need to revise again to produce a draft that another person can follow. Part of this process involves effective signposting.

Liz also recommends The Perfect Sentence Vortex.
