Appendices

With its low cost, the excellent coverage of topics, and generally accessible scholastic tone adopted, this reviewer has no reservations in recommending A Dictionary of Science for acquisition by school, college or university libraries. - Gareth J. Johnson, Reference Reviews

Review from previous edition The book will appeal not just to scientists and science students but also to the interested lay person. And it passes the most difficult test of any dictionary - it is well worth browsing. - New Scientist

All entries are clear and brief, written in no-nonsense prose...A handy reference work. - TES

Handy and readable...for scientists aged nine to ninety - Nature

Oxford Dictionary of Science does a sound job of covering the science bases. - Jonathan Cowie, Concatenation
