Style manual for authors, editors and printers
Sixth edition 2002
The Style manual, first published in 1966, provides guidance and recommendations for anyone faced with the task of preparing material for publication in either print or electronic format. This sixth edition is a substantial revision, in response to the extensive changes in the publishing industry since the previous edition of 1994. It contains detailed advice on publishing in both print and electronic formats; it emphasises the importance of focusing on the audience's needs when planning, structuring, writing, designing and editing a publication; and reflects a more multicultural and global outlook that recognises the influence of the Internet on publishing. The procedural steps in publishing form the underlying structure of this new edition. Advice is given on how to plan, undertake and evaluate a publishing project. General practices in editing, design, electronic publishing, indexing and printing fields are also discussed.

Australian Style is a biannual newsletter published by members of the Linguistics Department, Macquarie University and supported by the Faculty of Human Sciences . From 1992 - 2007, Australian Style was produced by Macquarie University with the Australian Government providing some funding and arranging printing and circulation. The Australian Government no longer participates in the provision of Australian Style and Macquarie University has taken over the publishing role completely. Australian Style covers issues in Australian Style and the use of English in Australia, and invites feedback from the Australian public on topical points of usage and communication. The lead articles from Australian Style since 2003 are available in the Australian Style Archive.
