Chemistry & Physics: Resources

Includes Engineering Science.


Style Manuals for Research Papers in Chemistry or Physics

American Chemistry Society (ACS) Style Manual (PDF)

AIP (American Institute of Physics) no longer maintains a style manual. However, AIP does provide a webpage at that describes in detail how to prepare a paper for submission to the Journal of Applied Physics.

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers publishes the IEEE Editorial Style Manual (PDF).
