Abstract:

This style manual has been produced to assist authors, editors and production personnel in prepartation of scientific and technical reports. Guidelines have been designed to provide specific instructions to different groups who write, edit, type and lay out copy for the US Army Print Plant or to conform to GPO printing requirements. This report consists of two main parts. Part I will be of interest to the author as it addresses standards of style, grammar, word usage, spelling aids, verbiage reduction tips and so on. Part II is of particular interest to production personnel as it describes and illustrates the mechanical aspects of report preparation in terms of format, treatment of tables and figures, pagination, numbering, cover format, organization, classification markings and proper referencing.
