Manuscript Preparation, Copyediting, and Proofreading

Q. I’m in search of a good solid reference work for style in books in the sciences. Thanks.

A. We recommend Scientific Style and Format: The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers, 7th ed., compiled by the Style Manual Committee of the Council of Science Editors (Reston, VA: Council of Science Editors in cooperation with the Rockefeller University Press, 2006).
