Scientific Style and Format

The Stanford University Libraries are providing a four month trial of the online version of Scientific Style and Format, the most recognized, authoritative reference for authors, editors, publishers, students, and translators in all areas of science and related fields. Authored by the Council of Science Editors (CSE) and published by the University of Chicago Press, the eighth edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect recent changes in language relating to the perpetually evolving electronic and online environments. New to this edition are guidelines and examples for citing online images and information graphics, podcasts and webcasts, online videos, blogs, social networking sites, and e-books.
