Australian Government Style Manual
The Australian Government Style Manual (Style Manual) is the authoritative source of rules and guidance for government writing and editing.
The aim of Style Manual is to help make government communication clear and consistent.
It helps you to put people’s needs at the centre of all the content you create. It’s the toolkit for making information easy to read, accessible and inclusive.
The approach to guidance is digital first, with print considerations noted where appropriate. This reflects the Australian Government’s vision under the Digital Transformation Strategy.
Style Manual supersedes:
- the sixth edition of the Style manual for authors, editors and printers
- the Content Guide.
