By | June 13, 2009
Intended mainly for "editors and publication officers at research institutes and extension agencies" in developing countries, this easy-to-read manual contains much good advice. The chapters on editing are are especially good; some other parts, such as those on printing and photography, are now out of date, as the technology has changed since the manual appeared in 1991. This manual, published by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), was written by editor Ian Montagnes as part of a training project. It contains many examples from agriculture.
