The Australian manual of scientific style (AMOSS), developed by Biotext and published in partnership with Macquarie University, will be launched this Thursday evening at Macquarie University in Sydney.
After three years of development, Biotext is excited to partner with Macquarie University to expand access and further develop AMOSS, a comprehensive online resource for anyone writing or editing scientific information.
AMOSS is the essential guide for anyone producing academic, scientific or technical information, helping to deliver consistency across different publications and authors within an organisation, and across time.
‘It also saves time and makes the publication process more efficient by eliminating arguments over style and the need for multiple editing changes’, says Dr Richard Stanford, Biotext Managing Director.
The new partnership with Macquarie sees the further development of AMOSS with the addition of research into accessible communication, as well as new style information for specific scientific disciplines and data visualisation.
AMOSS will feature on the StyleHub, a platform Biotext and Macquarie University are currently developing for publications relating to style, communication and accessibility standards.
‘Biotext’s partnership with Macquarie University is a natural match, as both organisations are very serious about making recommendations on style, language and terminology based on rigorous research,’ said Dr Stanford.
‘We are committed to further research on scientific style and general communication, and we look forward to continuing to bring clear standards and accessibility to complex and specialised fields of work.’
AMOSS has been designed with the intent that it becomes a ‘living resource’, evolving with input from Australia’s academic, science, editing and design communities.
