Style Manual - 6th Edition (2002)

Style manual: for authors, editors and printers 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.
