Editorial Style at IU
Find the right style guide for your communication needs
University Communications and Marketing maintains two style guides for use by the IU community: the Editorial Style Guide and the IU Web Style Guide.
Editorial Style Guide
This is the resource we have provided for years. It covers all elements of usage, from spelling, capitalization, and punctuation to the official names of IU campuses and how to style content related to courses.
Web Style Guide
This is a comprehensive guide to developing, designing, and writing in the IU web framework. We consider the two guides complementary. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in one, be sure to consult the other.
Just have a quick spelling question?
The Spelling and Capitalization Guide is here to help. Consider it your cheat sheet for the most basic of style questions.
