I was reading a turkish translation of Robert A. Day , How to Write & Publish a Scientific Paper. Foreword is written by A. M. Celâl Şengör. In this foreword
The writer who always uses third person .... should know the origin of this style of expression and should be conscious of that it can sometimes obscure originality of an article. Use of "third person" has become general and a strict editorial policy in some journals. Knowing these facts is only way to resist to Editors who insist on using "third person".
I would like to learn "origin of third person, passive voice in scientific/technical writing"
