William E. Russey earned his Ph.D. in chemistry at Harvard in 1967, where he was in the research group of E. J. Corey. His professional life was spent on the faculty of Juniata College, Huntingdon (Pennsylvania), from which he retired as Dana-Supported Professor of Chemistry in 2002. Translator of several books, primarily for VCH, and numerous articles for Angewandte Chemie, he has also co-authored the books 'The Art of Scientific Writing' and 'Text and Graphics in the Electronic Age'.

Hans F. Ebel received his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1960 with Georg Wittig at the University of Heidelberg (Germany). He was for many years Senior Editor and later a member of the board of directors of the publishing house Verlag Chemie/VCH (now Wiley-VCH). Author and co-author of numerous original publications including books, he has been active since 1982 in the field of scientific publication.

Claus Bliefert has since 1973 been a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Applied Sciences Münster (Germany) where he is heading the school's Laboratory for Environmental Chemistry. Author and co-author of numerous books, including several in the field of scientific communication, he regularly presents lectures and seminars on topics like "Scientific Writing" and "Technical Presentation".
