Scientific Style and Format
We have trial access to Scientific Style and Format, a valuable reference guide from the Council of Science Editors until July 31, 2015. It should be a helpful tool for anyone writing scientific papers.
This eighth edition "has been fully revised...to reflect today’s best practices in scientific publishing," and the online edition is fully searchable and browseable to easily find the information authors, editors, students, and faculty need about general style conventions, special scientific conventions, or citation and references.
The best way to browse from main parts to specific chapters and down to detailed sections is from the table of contents on the Welcome page, whereas the introduction to and overview of the the whole thing is on the Home page.
We'll have access to this until the end of July, and we very much appreciate any feedback any faculty or students can offer us.
From February 26 to March 31, 2015, we have trial access to Statista.com, a statistics portal integrating data on over 80,000 topics from over 18,000 sources onto a single professional platform. Categorized into 21 market sectors, it provides direct access to quantitative data on media, business, finance, politics, and a wide variety of other areas of interest.
We depend on your feedback in judging these trial databases.
Please let us know what you think.
