I'm deciding that I want to buy a dictionary for all sciences: biology, physics and chemistry but I don't know what publisher of dictionary I  should get.

Can anyone suggest the best dictionary and publisher to get...

i been using science dictionaries from Oxford University Press. Not very thick books, very concise, but still not textbook replacements. It's good enough to be the glossary section of any science textbooks
