The recent announcement by the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) about the next milestone in the chapter of the Style Manual's revision was hotly anticipated. In a comment to Books + Publishing on the announcement, Rowena Austin, Chair of IPEd's Style Manual Steering Group (SMSG) said:
'The Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) congratulates Ethos CRS on being awarded the tender for the development of Stage 1 of the Style manual seventh edition.
'A major revision of this standard reference work on Australian style is long overdue, particularly in response to the major technological changes that have occurred since 2002.'
'We hope that the seventh edition will provide relevant and detailed advice on best practices for all editors, not only for those working in and for government.'
