MLA style manual and guide to scholarly publishing, 3d ed.
The third edition of this style manual from the Modern Language Association, the standard for the publishing of scholarly papers for over 50 years, has been expanded to include new formats for electronic sources, as well as updated information on copyrights and guidelines on preparing electronic files. Many of the enduring standards have been retained, however, such as guidelines for submitting manuscripts to publishers, and how to deal with legal issues surrounding the publishing of academic papers. This guide should be valuable for research scientists, graduate students and anyone who must prepare text for academic publication. (©20082005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
