This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


\usepackage[margin=3cm,bindingoffset=5mm]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry

and add the option twoside to \documentclass{<class>} if you're publishing in twoside mode.
