Thanks for the information. I was referring to amazon.com/Writers-Research-Dissertations-Seventh-Edition/dp/….

@Neil Fein: Lucky and burdened with choices. Oh yes, I've heard of MLA. Do you happen to know whether the "CMOS for academic writing" is any good?

Thanks for the answer, I feel quite confirmed - especially putting much time into the index (+1).

I have the liberty to pick. I do like APA's style of citing, and often pick what CMOS suggests if I can't decide based on other criteria. (What's MLA?)

comment Should I prefer long or short sentences in scientific writing?
Yes, I see it the same way. I'd say chopping makes sense if sentences become longer than roughly 20 words (highly dependent on the sentence, though).

What, if chopping is really easy? Simple example: The solution is foo that has to do bar and therefore goes baz. -> The solution is foo that has to do bar. Therefore, it goes baz. Which one is better? Up to which length of the sentences?

@M.A: I like your comment (+1). Why don't you write it as an answer?

+1 for "making the text easiest to understand". But after doing some research, I am afraid that too many too short sentences might make the text choppy, therefore not easier to understand.
