Abstract:

This Guide provides information necessary for authors to prepare and produce technical publications for the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC. This version of the Guide consolidates processes and procedures used at all ERDC sites. Technical information guidelines are based on ANSINISO Z39.18-2005, and the essential mechanics of professional writing, including language use, punctuation, and reference format, are based on The Chicago Manual of Style of Style, 15th edition. The Guide also discusses items of specific relevance to preparing ERDC reports, including publishing workflow and preferred electronic file formats. The presentation formats prescribed by this Guide, such as fonts, point sizes, and page headers, were modified to facilitate Web-based publishing.
