Summary

What do I need to know before I . . . write a paper . . . prepare a poster presentation . . . write a letter to the editor . . . peer-review a manuscript . . . create a graph . . . use previously published art?

These and other important questions are answered in this second edition of the best-selling The ACS Style Guide: A Manual for Authors and Editors. In this must-have volume, you will find guidelines for editorial style that can be used for scientific papers published worldwide. The book discusses format, grammar, and usage as well as the use and preparation of illustrations, chemical structures, and tables in scientific papers. It also provides an overview of copyright as it relates to publishing and reviews the basics of planning and preparing poster and oral presentations.

In this edition, editorial style has been expanded into a full chapter. There are also new chapters on numbers and math, references, chemical compounds, conventions in chemistry, and the peer review process. An essential addition to every library, this book will help authors, editors, and reviewers understand their roles in the publication process.
