Editorial style

Adhering to an agreed editorial style is important to lend consistency and clarity to the print and online texts published by the AO’s clinical divisions, institutes, support, and service units. Our editorial style guide is not a comprehensive grammar or writing guide but rather a reference tool that will help make your texts as consistent and effective as possible.
Having a consistent editorial style not only lends credibility to your work, and enhances the reputation and appearance of the AO, but it also makes your texts easier to read and understand. The editorial style guidelines, although flexible,
are to be followed as closely as possible in the interest of a unified AO image.

If in doubt please contact the AO Communications & Events team.
