Consistency is key, and style sheets can help

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Lisa Lines, AE at a recent meeting of the Canberra Society of Editors. Dr Lines presented about style sheets, a tool that professional editors use to:

  • keep track of editing decisions
  • ensure consistency in documents
  • help authors understand the changes that have been made
  • help other authors or editors apply those decisions if there’s more work to be done in the publication process.

Access Editing always provides clients with style sheets to explain decisions made in the editing process. And I’m always available to answer any of your questions or provide further explanation. Get in touch at
