The classic scientific English debate.

What does the non-American scientist in this forum use when writing papers/posters/presentations?
E.g. Immunise or immunize?
E.g. Sulphur or sulfur?

Does it depend on where you submit your manuscript?

How about the issue with metric system? Celsius vs. Fahrenheit?

The format you use doesn't matter, so long as you are consistent!
