I am a PhD student in ecology. Statistical challenges and visual presentation of complex data are among my favorite professional interests. R is my favorite program.

comment Should one cite a LaTeX package in a scientific publication?
Thanks for the help! I approve the logic behind the statement that LaTeX packages should not be cited as long as they do not change the numbers behind the representation (i.e. the work can be reproduced). Following the same logic: you should not cite say ggplot2 unless you use the stat_smooth() function, which does number crunching that might be hard to reproduce. Instead one could consider placing these packages to acknowledgements.

comment Conditional formatting, rounding and postprocessing of a column in pgfplotstable
Thanks for the tip. I didn't know that. Both of the following after \ifnum\... produce errors: \mathbf{\pgfmathprintnumber{##1}}, \pgfmathprintnumber{\mathbf{##1}}. Even \pgfmathprintnumber{##1} gives a weird result (scientific notation). There must be something wrong with this line: /pgfplots/table/@cell content/.initial={}{%?

Anyway making these commands a bit shorter? \SI{}{\micro\metre} is awfully long for just writing µm

Thanks for a nice question! Please update siunitx as the right answer (I went to the trap of trying SIunits at first, because I was impatient to read the entire tread).

Ops, I placed it inside \it{}. That's why it didn't work. Thanks for help!

Thanks! It seems not to work with \def, though. If I define \def\GM{{\it Gadus morhua\xspace}}, I'll get Gadus morhuais a fish without space

comment How to convert a scientific manuscript to MS Word for a coauthor review
First: I tried Mendeley and it seems to be a really nice program. I am very thankful that you linked it here, since I didn't know about it. Thanks! Then: If some of the coauthors are unwilling to use Adobe Acrobat Pro or other pdf readers capable for annotations, why should they use Mendeley? To me it seems the same than any other program. Some of the coauthors want to delete text in their text processor and add their own stuff. This is what makes them to feel that they have the control over the document, I guess...
