LAUNCHING JANUARY 2020
Now in a digital-first format, the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication provides students, researchers, educators, and librarians with the instruction and advice they need to master the art of scholarly communication.
- Always up-to-date with digital format
- Completely modernized with eleven new chapters
- Video best practices for authoring scholarly communication, brought to life through annotated published examples
The ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication is now available by campus-wide unlimited seat, digital institutional subscription.
With over 1.3 million digital downloads of the current edition, the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication is recognized as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to best practices for scientists across the STM disciplines.
Always up-to-date: digital-first, updated and expanded biannually
Given the rapidly changing publishing landscape, the new version of the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication will be a digital-first resource, with regular and timely updates. New topics will be added to (1) expand scientific communication beyond the scientific journal, including patents, communicating science to the public, and communicating science to decision-makers; (2) expand data conventions beyond chemistry; and (3) broaden our reach beyond ethics in scientific publications to ethics in scientific research.
More than a set of rules for creating a well-formatted document to be published in a journal, the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication is the go-to tool to help students, librarians, researchers, and educators communicate effectively and make their research stand out.
