Scientific and technical style manual

Biotext is developing a scientific and technical style manual to provide a comprehensive Australian guide for anyone who writes or edits scientific or other complex material. Some of you attended our lunchtime session about this at the ASC conference earlier this month.

We welcome your input, and would particularly love to know what you would like to see included in such a guide.

Please take a minute to fill in a short survey to help us to develop the resource you need:

The survey will be available until 31 March.

Web publishing: Increasingly, reports that Biotext has worked on are becoming full websites instead of being confined to a printed document. For example, we developed a complex website for the 2013 South Australian state of the environment report, so that readers could experience the full report online.
