Frankenstein is not a Monster

Did you know that Frankenstein is not the monster, but its creator? This is among the helpful tips included in the Economist Style Guide, (9th edition).

The Economist Style Guide style guide is noted with other style guides and resources on the Tools for Authors Becker Guides under the Preparing for Publication tab. The Washington University Style Guide is another example of a style guide. Authors are highly recommended to check the WU Style Guide for guidance on noting affiliation information on publications. Authors affiliated with the School of Medicine are encouraged to use “Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis” as their affiliation. Consistent use of the affiliation name enhances attribution to the author and university.
