a Style Guide
As author, you need to
select a locus for ultimate publication of your manuscript. For longer works
select a university press. For shorter works a scientific or scholarly journal
is appropriate. The publisher’s Web site, under "Guidelines for Authors" or
similar heading, will tell you which style guide to follow.

experienced reshaping manuscripts in accordance with the requirements of the
following style guides:
