```Hello !

Yes, there is.
For example :

In[92]:=
data = Table[Random[Real, {-1.5/10^5, 5/10^6}], {20}]

In[93]:=
des = ListPlot[data];

In[94]:=
Clear[a, b, c, d]

In[95]:=
tic = (Ticks /. AbsoluteOptions[des])[[2]]

In[96]:=
tic2 = tic /. {(a_)?NumericQ, (b_)?NumericQ, c_, d_} ->
{a, ScientificForm[b], c, d};

In[97]:=
ListPlot[data, Ticks -> {Automatic, tic2}]

Dear All,

I am plotting data points with y-values between -1.5x10^-5 and
5x10^-6.  Mathematica labels the lowermost y-axis tick as "-0.000015"
and the uppermost y-axis tick at "5 x 10^-5".  Is there any way to ask
Mathematica to label all of the y-axis ticks using only scientific
notation (rather than a mixture of scientific notation and decimal
form)?
