Select 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.

The ThesisEditor is highly experienced reshaping manuscripts in accordance with the requirements of the following style guides:

For graduate school theses, also consult the official thesis style guide for your university.

(If you need to follow the AMA style guide or the Blue Book, you should probably consult a thesis editor who specializes in the medical or legal fields.)  

For further information write to leeayoung@morrisbb.net.

After selecting a style guide, you are ready to continue preparing your manuscript.
