Inhaltsangabe: This is a useful reference source for medical and scientific editors and authors. It describes and defines the SI units that are in current use or have recently been instituted, gives guidelines on commonly used symbols and nomenclature, offers recommendations for the layout of references, and gives an abbreviated version of the British Standard Institution's list of symbols for proof corrections. The book has been completely revised and updated to take account of changes that have taken place over the last six years.
I have always found this booklet most useful. Everything I have had problems with has always been answered within its covers, and it is a great quotable source for use with awkward authors. (Editing Matters, Jul/Aug 2008 )
The sixth edition of Units, Symbols and Abbreviations is an excellent guide for authors, scientists, medical writers, and editors. The authors present very good references throughout the book - I believe this book is an excellent companion for any author and editor in the field of biomedical sciences. ((WAME) and Editorial Consultant, The Lancet, Jun 2008 )
This little paperback is remarkably informative for its size. It is a quick reference source for anyone writing theses or papers and is very reasonably priced. (Patricia de Winter, Physiology News 72, Autumn 2008 )
