Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For more than fifty years, authors, editors, and publishers in the scientific community have turned to Scientific Style and Format for authoritative recommendations on all matters of writing style and citation. Developed by the Council of Science Editors (CSE), the leading professional association in science publishing, this indispensable guide encompasses all areas of the sciences. Now in its eighth edition, it has been fully revised to reflect today's best practices in scientific publishing. nbsp; Scientific Style and Format citation style has been comprehensively reorganized, and its style recommendations have been updated to align with the advice of authoritative international bodies. Also new to the eighth edition are guidelines and examples for citing online images and information graphics, podcasts and webcasts, online videos, blogs, social networking sites, and e-books. Style instructions for physics, chemistry, genetics, biological sciences, and astronomy have been adjusted to reflect developments in each field. The coverage of numbers, units, mathematical expressions, and statistics has been revised and now includes more information on managing tables, figures, and indexes. Additionally, a full discussion of plagiarism and other aspects of academic integrity is incorporated, along with a complete treatment of developments in copyright law, including Creative Commons.
nbsp; For the first time in its history, Scientific Style and Format will be available simultaneously in print and online at www.scientificstyleandformat.org.nbsp;Online subscribers will receive access to full-text searches of the new edition and other online tools, as well as the popular Chicago Manual of Style Online Forum, a community discussion board for editors and authors. Whether online or in print, the eighth edition of Scientific Style and Format remains the essential resource for those writing, editing, and publishing in the scientific community.

CHOICE Review

In the 8th edition of this manual (7th ed., CH, Jan'07, 44-2450), significant additions include the guidelines for citing some of the newest information formats, including information graphics, podcasts, blogs, social networking sites, and e-books. This style manual from the Council of Science Editors does not simply tell scientists how to cite appropriately; it provides a holistic overview of preparing scientific work, from typography to specialized scientific conventions. Also included is an overview that discusses plagiarism and copyright, including Creative Commons licensing. The very clear organization of the manual helps readers locate relevant information. Included is a wide range of information, such as how to choose appropriate--rather than "cutesy"--journal article titles so that information will show up in online searches. The pleasant, readable style of the text will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students. Upper-level students will find a lengthy section on journal style and format, and on published media (e.g., monographs). Although journals tend to have their own unique style, the guidelines presented here are general enough to be helpful and descriptive to a wide academic audience. This manual is also available via an online subscription at http://www.scientificstyleandformat.org/. --Jessica Clemons, State University of New York-ESF
