Abstract:

This Australian Defense document has been written as a basic guide for the preparation of drafts of publications in the Aeronautical Research Laboratories ARL series but it is nevertheless relevant to the preparation of external papers. It is not intended as a treatise on techniques for the collation, reviewing and the detailed order of presentation of material which are essential steps in the publication of scientific research, nor does it discuss except in passing the questions of authors style or good English, or the various actions in the ARL publication process. The major objective of this document is to draw attention to a number of points which, if consistently followed, will make the task of your reader in checking, refereeing or simply reading your draft much more enjoyable and far less tedious. Unnecessary time, effort and costs associated with the correction and publication of your work and the proof checking of text and illustrations will also be reduced.
