    This is a good reference for scientific writing and a must for aspiring, new scientists trying to publishing in ACS journals. This book can be picked up for less than 5 bucks and is well worth the price.

    Some style manuals go on and on about the do's and don'ts of grammar and punctuation. This one is clear and to the point.

    This book did not help me at all. Honestly I think it was a waste of money. I wrote several organic papers and tried using this book as a guideline to form my template, and the paper was still incorrectly formatted. The best template is to find a paper from an online journal.

    I specifically ordered the 2nd edition (1997) which was shown, even though the 3rd edition is now out, but I received the completely useless 1st edition 1986!!! What a rip-off!!! I checked the year before ordering!!! And still received the old useless 1986 1st edition!!!

    I had to buy this book for my Writing for Chemists in college. It was very expensive when I bought it. I only used it once. The book is not very well organized, and it is difficult to find what you need. I think it is not a good book!

    The American Chemical Society has done an excellent job in compiling this invaluable resource for its members. It encompasses everything you could possible want to know about writing a scientific paper, posters, letters to the editor, press releases, naming and numbering of chemical compounds, conventions in chemistry, copyright, ethical issues as well as preparing an effective oral presentation. In addition, it has a clear and concise section on grammar and punctuation, a very functional index, is up-to-date including guidelines on how to cite references from Web sites, and provides a useful bibliography after each chapter. My job often involves proofreading of abstracts or journal articles in various fields of science; apart from a dictionary to check spelling, this is the resource I reach for most.

    The ACS Style Guide (A Manual for Authors and Editors) 2nd is an up-to-date edition for the authors and editors, and a guideline for the American Chemistry Society (ACS) publications. This edition almost answers all the possible question of authors and editors. The detail index from page 431 to page 460 gives us the most effective, comprehensive and user-friendly guide for publication.
