Writing Guidelines

To present TTUHSC to the world as a quality institution, our publications and written material also must be of the highest quality. Adherence to a consistent editorial style is essential to maintaining the university's stature.

Printed materials should speak with one voice, present messages clearly and communicate our message and image precisely. Editors should exercise great care to proofread copy.

Style Guide

Back to Top

TTUHSC uses The Associated Press Stylebook as its basic style guide. In certain instances, however, journalistic style is not appropriate for university publications. In those cases, it is appropriate to distinguish between media style, which follows the Associated Press, and publications style, which follows a more formal, academic style.

In cases where the editor feels the need for yet other choices, the Chicago Manual of Style may be followed. When an alternate is used, however, the chosen option should be followed consistently throughout the document or publication.
