Treasury Board's Planning Information Products: Effective, No-frills Publishing Practices promotes producing publications that are economical, well-designed and environmentally sound, and that communicate effectively. It calls for the elimination of non-essential publications and for a departmental review of current practices and methods of providing information.
Considerations for print publications include:
- choosing a recycled paper;
- printing in one colour only;
- avoiding complicated folds on panel folders and kit folders;
- avoiding fancy diecutting on covers, panel folders and kit folders; and
- printing only quantities that are needed.
Considerations for electronic products include:
- user access;
- reproduction (texts, graphics, sound);
- storage capacity;
- text retrieval software;
- applicable standards; and
- links with other information sources.
