comment What software can handle both revision control and layout?
My impression is that someone has pasted an office memo in toto here. Can the OP rephrase this as a simple straight-forward question?

comment What did Norman Mailer mean?
Could we make random inferences without the support of the writer's context? Was Mailer really into an alimony case? Was he speaking about himself, for that matter?

comment I suck at plots. Is there a way to sort of train oneself to think of creative plots, specifically in scifi?
People don't 'think of creative plots,' they think of plots creatively, or rather, they just think, and happen to come up with great plots. In short, 'everything I think of just seems so cliche' -- this is just because you are aiming at being creative, which is the reverse of the above process.

comment APA (sixth edition) citation for the Fourth Assessment Report
'Employee Benefit ...' is the kind I had meant. Thanks for clarifying 'institutional authors', which I had overlooked mentioning.

comment APA (sixth edition) citation for the Fourth Assessment Report
+1 Perfect, to the point answer. There seems to be no need to cite the individual authors as feared in the OP.

"... to look up a picture, then read the tag that points to the name of the item in the picture!" that makes it more of a Thesaurus?

@MohammadHedayati This, I guess, is the answer OP seeks. Could you provide some reference and preferably post this as an answer?

comment Scientific Citation
But is it accepted as a standard or convention? Is it the predominantly used alternative? Because even I am seriously interested to know.

comment Replacing actually with a more formal alternative
The use of greatly and similar qualifying words/ phrases may always be contested in an academic report. What is great to you may not be (so) great to another objective reader/ reviewer. Generally, the "by about thirty per cent" would take the place of greatly, leaving it to the reader to decide how significant thirty per cent is.

comment Is it ok to begin an essay/report with a quote?
However, let's not take my answer alone. I suggest we wait for any better ideas further down.
