This podcast explains where (and why) to use the past or the present tense (or the present perfect tense) of verbs in each part of a research paper. For example, should the Results section always be in the past tense? Which verb tense is correct for Figure Legends or Subheadings? Did you know that verb tenses can change within the same sentence? Even native-English authors of medical and science papers get the answers to these questions wrong!
