Editorial Style Guide
Is it it's or its? That or which? Who or whom? What's the proper way to present an academic title or degree? When should you capitalize university?
These are but a few of the questions addressed in the Seattle University Editorial Style Guide.
Whether writing a thank you letter or a multi-page grant proposal, an institutional editorial style guide is an important and invaluable tool. In short, a style guide is a set of rules or guidelines for word use, punctuation, grammar and formatting that govern—in this case—print and Web material.
An editorial style guide is important for consistency and accuracy, both of which are valuable in an environment such as Seattle University. With the many documents that are generated each day, a style guide is an effective tool for communicating, in a professional and consistent manner, key messages to a variety of audiences.
