Can we have all frame ticks in scientific format in *Plot ?

Posted 12 years ago
When I plot, for example, the following: 

LogLogPlot[x^5, {x, 10^-6, 10^6}, Filling -> Bottom]

Some frame ticks are displayed in scientific format and others in decimal form. Is there a way to have all frame ticks displayed with scientific notation? I ended up using something like this: 

xticks = Table[{10^i, DisplayForm@SuperscriptBox[10, i]}, {i, -6, 6, 2}];
yticks = Table[{10^i, DisplayForm@SuperscriptBox[10, i]}, {i, -30, 30, 5}];
LogLogPlot[x^5, {x, 10^-6, 10^6}, Ticks -> {xticks, yticks}, Filling -> Bottom]

The thing is, I am satisfied with the tick values computed by Mathematica, but it seems that I'd have to specify these values in order to also dictate how they are displayed.

LogLogPlot includes explicit ticks in the result, so we can extract them and adjust the labels to our liking:
llp = LogLogPlot[x^5, {x, 10^-6, 10^6},Filling->Bottom];
ticks = Map[
   If[MatchQ[#, {_, _}], {First[#], Superscript[10, Round@Log10[E^First[#]]]}, #] &,
   Ticks /. Options[llp, Ticks], {2}];
Show[llp, Ticks -> ticks]
