Art + Australia Publishing uses the Macquarie Dictionaryfor preferred spellings, with the Shorter Oxford as a second reference. For matters of style beyond this A+A house style guide, refer to the AGPS (Wylie) Style Manual, with the Chicago Manual of Style as a second reference. The Cambridge Guide to Australian English Usage is a handy reference for points of usage.
Spelling & capitalisation
- Use Australian/British spellings not American; e.g., artefact NOT artifact, travelling NOT traveling
- Use ‘-‐ise’ word endings where relevant, not ‘-‐ize’
- Titles of artworks, photographs, exhibitions and books take title case and italics, unless specified otherwise by the artist
- Titles in other languages follow the capitalisation styles for those languages
- Article titles and subtitles take title case; section titles within articles or chapters take sentence case(including contributions to Art + Australia)
- Names of art movements and historical and cultural periods or styles are not capitalised (e.g., postmodernism, cubism, futurism), with the exception of those that include proper nouns, e.g., Pre-‐Raphaelites
- Descriptive titles of works (i.e., those not given by the artist) take sentence case and roman
- Use the term Untitled in italics if an artist has referred to their work as such but Untitled in roman ifthis has been assigned by someone other than the artist
- Titles retain the spellings of the originals, e.g., a US edition of a book with Color in the title
Punctuation & abbreviations
- Use a single space after full points
- Use single quote marks not double, but use doubles within quoted material closed by single quotes
- If an acronym is used, spell out at first mention with the acronym in brackets; thereafter use theacronym
- Use italics to denote emphasis in discursive text
Numbers & dates
- In discursive text, spell out numbers up to and including nine, and use digits for numbers greater thannine; but always spell out a number that begins a sentence
- Specific dates are expressed in the following form: 16 August 1987
- Decades are expressed in the following form: 1960s; 1980s and 90s
- Centuries are expressed in numerals; e.g., 19th century
- Circa dates given with full point and space; e.g., c. 1867
- Use unspaced en dashes for number spans; e.g., 1999–2010; 2005–10; pp. 21–22
- When naming an artwork in discursive text, place the date in brackets immediately after
- Present references in endnote format rather than as footnotes or author–date (Harvard) citations through the text
- Use brackets rather than superscript for endnote numbering in the body text; i.e. (1)
- If an author publishes under their full name, please spell out rather than use initials only for first name(s)
