Abstract:

The Air University Style and Author Guide is designed to unify the writing of faculty, staff, and students of Air University stylistically, and to give them information about publishing with Air University AU Press. Rapid expansion in the field of electronic media, especially the Internet, has made AU research and writing increasingly accessible. For that reason, there is a need to ensure that Air University publications are sound, not only substantively but also stylistically. Based on recognized but forward-looking principles of standard English usage, the Air University Style Guide for Writers and Editors, part one of this publication, provides reliable guidance on such matters as terms and usage, abbreviations, grammar and punctuation, capitalization, spelling, numbers, italics, display dots, and documentation. Following the advice found here will make AU publications stylistically consistent and acceptable. Part two, the Air University Press Author Guide, contains instructions to writers who wish to have their studies considered for publication by the Air Forces air and space power publisher.
