Australian manual of scientific style

The Australian manual of scientific style (AMOSS) provides practical and expert guidance to help you to present information and data clearly, correctly and effectively. AMOSS has 3 chapters of content:
•  Writing
•  Editing
•  Showing.

Each chapter has multiple sections, some of which are listed in the left-hand navigation pane and others within the parent page.

How you navigate through AMOSS will depend on what you want from the manual. The extent and complexity of the content mean that each section of information sits independently within the database.

If you just want to browse the information, as you would a book, you can use the left-hand menu to access the sections within chapters, and the ‘previous page’ and ‘next page’ links at the bottom of a page. If you get lost, look at the breadcrumbs at the top of the page, or use the back button of your browser to get back to a page.

If you know exactly what you are looking for, it is best to use the search function. This will show you a number of sections of information you can navigate to directly. If you want more context to that information, you can use the breadcrumbs at the top of the page to go to the parent page or look at the left-hand menu to see what part of the manual has been ‘activated’.
