Bringing government style into the digital age


We are delighted to have agreed a collaboration with the Australian National Dictionary Centre (ANDC) to update the seventh edition of the Australian Government’s Style Manual, and make it more relevant for the digital age.

We will work with the Australian Government’s digital transformation agency, Ethos CRS, using our language expertise to help produce a definitive digital style manual that will set a new authoritative standard—both in Australia and internationally—that helps to make government communications simple, clear, and consistent.

OUP Australia & New Zealand Managing Director Arthur Baker commented: “As the authority on Australian English, we are looking forward to contributing to the Australian Government’s Style Manual, ensuring the highest standards for writing and publishing are maintained, and that the language used in government publications reflects the new realities of the digital age. We are honoured to have been selected to help inform this publication that will refresh and define the style of government communications.”

ANDC Director Dr Amanda Laugesen added: “The ANDC is excited to be involved in this important project. The contribution of the Centre’s research on contemporary Australian and global English usage will help to ensure that the new Style Manual is authoritative, relevant, and reliable.”

Work on the project commenced in July with the aim of releasing the live product in 2020.
