As the intellectual and leadership center of the Air Force, the Air University AU produces cutting-edge scholarship on airpower to advance our understanding of defense and national security issues. The Air University Style and Author Guide helps ensure that the form and style of AU scholarship are as impressive as the substance. Like its predecessor, this second edition of AU-1, Air University Style and Author Guide, will prove to be indispensable to AU faculty, staff, students, and prospective authors. Faithful use of this guide will help the airpower communityproduce scholarly manuscripts that conform to current academic norms of style, format, language, and documentation. Part 1 of this publication, Air University Style Guide for Writers and Editors, provides guidance on such matters as grammar, mechanics, and documentation of sources. Part 2, Air University Press Author Guide, offers instructions for authors who wish to submit manuscripts for possible publication by AU Press. In most matters, the Air University Style and Author Guide follows the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, but it also addresses many military-specific matters of style and mechanics that are not covered in most other style guides. AU-1 is an important reference tool for all AU writers, and I highly encourage its use.
