Short Desription

From astronomy to zoology, biochemistry to microbiology, The Oxford Dictionary for Scientific Writers and Editors offers a wealth of information on virtually every area of science, providing clear, jargon-free definitions of terms from physics, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, immunology, and much more. Following the guidelines of such international scientific bodies as IUPAC and IUPAP, this comprehensive work provides a style guide for the presentation of scientific information, offering clear guidance on spelling (both American and British), punctuation, abbreviations, prefixes and suffixes, units and quantities, and symbols. Most important, the author has completely revised and updated the already impressive coverage of the first edition, and substantially increased coverage of the life sciences. New and revised appendices also provide valuable supplementary tables, including SI units, mathematical symbols, the electromagnetic spectrum, and the periodic table. It belongs on the reference shelf of students, academics, editors, proofreaders, publishers, typesetters, printers, newspaper and magazine editors, web editors, journalists, and anyone else who works with scientific writing.
