Description

Product Description

In the time since the second edition of The ACS Style Guide was published, the rapid growth of electronic communication has dramatically changed the scientific, technical, and medical (STM) publication world. This dynamic mode of dissemination is enabling scientists, engineers, and medical
practitioners all over the world to obtain and transmit information quickly and easily. An essential constant in this changing environment is the requirement that information remain accurate, clear, unambiguous, and ethically sound.

This extensive revision of The ACS Style Guide thoroughly examines electronic tools now available to assist STM writers in preparing manuscripts and communicating with publishers. Valuable updates include discussions of markup languages, citation of electronic sources, online submission of
manuscripts, and preparation of figures, tables, and structures. In keeping current with the changing environment, this edition also contains references to many resources on the internet.

With this wealth of new information, The ACS Style Guide''s Third Edition continues its long tradition of providing invaluable insight on ethics in scientific communication, the editorial process, copyright, conventions in chemistry, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and writing style for any STM
author, reviewer, or editor. The Third Edition is the definitive source for all information needed to write, review, submit, and edit scholarly and scientific manuscripts.

Helpful for Advanced Organic Chem Lab

The list of abbreviations and common solvent names is great for writing experimental sections on lab reports for Advanced Organic Chemistry Lab. The reference examples are also particularly helpful for citing sources in the intro, etc. I look forward to using this again... See more
The list of abbreviations and common solvent names is great for writing experimental sections on lab reports for Advanced Organic Chemistry Lab. The reference examples are also particularly helpful for citing sources in the intro, etc. I look forward to using this again in Polymers Lab and would recommend to any college student who doesn''t want to annoy their TA with formatting questions. Only downside is the price.

I''m a science copyeditor, and I truly don''t know how I''d manage without this book. If it has to do with chemistry, it''s here (thank heaven!). And there''s a wealth of clear information about how to format math, a wonderful list of unit abbreviations, and even a fair amount about physics- and biology-related terminology. It has the most lucid and concise explanations I''ve seen about when to apply italics or roman. And it''s reasonably priced. Of course, if you specifically need to follow ACS style, this book is de rigeur, but even if you don''t, you''ll find it invaluable for science copyediting.

In anticipation of starting my own business as a freelance scientific editor, I bought several style guides, one of which was this style guide and including the highly recommended "Scientific Style and Format" from CSE. The ACS Style Guide is the one I use the most, and now it''s falling apart and I need to purchase another. I absolutely can''t do without it!

The ACS style guide outlines the key features of the grammar/language/presentation preferred by publications of the American Chemical Society. While not as comprehensive as other guides (Chicago Manual of Style, Oxford Style Guide etc), it provides much information of specific interest to chemists. The sections on experimental data and word usage are especially useful, containing plenty of examples from the ACS literature. Overall, a useful purchase for anyone working/publishing in chemistry. Although it is available for free via the ACS website, being able to quickly flick through a book rather than logging and and downloading a PDF chapter is convenient enough to justify the purchase.
