The Australian Style GuideTM 

The Australian Style Guide logo

Plain English Foundation has developed the Australian Style GuideTM (ASG) as the definitive online resource on Australian style for writers and editors.

 
The ASG reflects Australian writing practice for both print and digital environments. It’s equally apt for the government, corporate and university sectors.
 
It captures the expert knowledge of our editors, who’ve been helping organisations to develop style and writing guides for over 20 years. And it’s free.
 
Whether you’re looking for how to structure documents, format numbers or punctuate your content, the ASG has you covered.
