Academic and Professional Writing: Scientific Reports This section describes an organizational structure commonly used to report experimental research in many scientific disciplines, the IMRAD format: Introduction, Methods, Results, And Discussion. Although the main headings are standard for many scientific fields, details may vary; check with your instructor, or, if submitting an article to a journal, refer to the instructions to authors. Although most scientific reports use the IMRAD format, there are some exceptions. This format is usually not used in reports describing other kinds of research, such as field or case studies, in which headings are more likely to differ according to discipline. Although the main headings are standard for many scientific fields, details may vary; check with your instructor, or, if submitting an article to a journal, refer to the instructions to authors.

CIA: The World Factbook The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) is the single point of contact for all inquiries about the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). We read every letter, fax, or e-mail we receive, and we will convey your comments to CIA officials outside OPA as appropriate. However, with limited staff and resources, we simply cannot respond to all who write to us. NIMS Materials Database (MatNavi) MatNavi is one of the world's largest materials databases of polymer, ceramic, alloy, superconducting material, composite and diffusion.

ASTM Standards Originally called the American Society for Testing and Materials, ASTM publishes a wide range of standards, focused on materials, but also covering products, systems and services. If you are doing business in the USA, ASTM standards can make compliance easier. ASTM standards have been adopted, by incorporation or by reference, in many federal, state, and municipal government regulations. You can now find and purchase over 12,000 ASTM standards through the BSI Shop. To find them, you can search on the standard number, i.e. Plain Language Humor: High Tech Humor The remarkable growth of the information technology industry has created a tremendous opportunity for people with skill putting words on paper. Technical writers, once a rare and highly skilled position, are now as common as fruit flies—though they take up a lot more space. Yet the pay is pretty good considering how little work they actually do, so young English-major weenies desperate for employment continue to swarm around IT companies, hoping for a bit of rotting fru—er, looking for a plum position. But it's not quite as easy as pulling up a keyboard and translating an engineer's notes into common English.

PLoS: Publication List The range of PLOS titles is expanding and now includes a number of new websites. Below, we describe the role of each group of products and how they fit together to support our mission of leading a transformation in research communication. Original Content These titles vary in the speed of publication, the nature of the peer review and selection process that takes place ahead of publication, and the breadth and nature of content that is published. They include: The PLOS Suite of Journals: Material Selection Charts In order to demonstrate the power of the material selection chart approach, a number of common property combinations have been plotted - these are listed below. If your browser is capable1, you should see interactive chart pages which: Allow you to view the selection charts.
