University house style guide revamped to help writers and editors

08 Nov 2013

Is writing part of your job? If so, our updated and expanded house style guide is here to help.

A house style is vital to making sure we're all on the same page when it comes to written communications. A consistent approach to spellings, punctuation and formatting helps maintain the professionalism and credibility of our messages. 

Our revised style guide will help you play your part in this, enabling you to make consistent decisions on:

  • University and academic terminology;
  • punctuation and capitalisation;
  • formatting and layout;
  • how to write numbers, dates, times and measurements;
  • how to present contact details.
