The Colorado State University Writers Style Guide supplements The Associated Press Stylebook and addresses editorial questions specific to the University.
This guide is intended to facilitate consistency in written communications geared to the general public and is not intended for students or faculty members writing academic papers. Communications targeted to scientific, technical, or specific audiences or for the Web may require a different style.
The guide is presented as a topical, A-Z list, with navigation listed below.
In addition to The Associated Press Stylebook (hereafter called the AP Stylebook), Colorado State communications specialists also consult other sources, including:
Written communication is dynamic and continually evolving; therefore, this guide is subject to periodic updating. Revised versions of the Colorado State University Writers Style Guide will be announced on this website and via electronic media including Today@Colorado State and the Faculty & Staff website.
