Style Guide

The Emond Style Guide describes the editorial style imposed on manuscripts published by Emond Publishing. Its purpose is to ensure consistency in the treatment of manuscripts throughout the production process.

Our house style is based on a variety of sources — major guides to usage such as The Chicago Manual of Style and the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, guides specific to legal disciplines (such as the Canadian Tax Foundation Style Guide), and the experience of many editors over many years. We follow the Emond Spelling Guide and the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, 2nd edition in spelling and hyphenation.

The Style Guide and the Spelling Guide are available on the Emond house style site.

For convenience, the short Style Guide and the full Spelling Guide are available also in Word:
