This guide describes the editorial style imposed on manuscripts edited and produced by Emond Publishing. The purpose of the guide is to ensure consistency in the treatment of manuscripts throughout the production process.
Emond's house style is based on a variety of sources — well-known guides such as The Chicago Manual of Style, guides specific to legal disciplines such as the Canadian Tax Foundation Style Guide, and the experience of many editors over many years.
Emond's style guide generally follows Canadian Oxford Dictionary, 2nd edition preferences for spellings, abbreviations, and hyphenation and the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 8th edition [McGill] for references. The APA and Chicago author–date reference systems are followed for some higher education titles.
Style is open to change; Emond style is no different. Unanticipated forms, well-founded exceptions to current practice, new habits — all can be expected.
