Editorial Guidelines


General rules for grammar and usage

This guide is intended to address questions of style that are frequently encountered in University publications. Communications and Marketing uses this style guide when creating documents and when assigning a publications number. Adoption of a uniform style gives consistency and unity of voice to UTC publications. Uniform style also allows copy to be shared among publications without the need for extensive re-editing.

In addition to this guide, the Office of Communications and Marketing uses A Manual of Style (The University of Chicago Press), Words Into Type (Prentice-Hall), and the Associated Press Stylebook as its main references for questions of style. Consult recent editions of these works for questions of style not answered here.
