Editorial Style Guide

Editorial Graphic

Consistency of editorial style and design strengthens the identity of an institution’s published materials, online and in print. Following a consistent style lets the writer concentrate on delivering the best content and messages to the reader. The editorial style manual for the University of New Hampshire’s print and electronic marketing materials is based on The Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition). These web pages summarize rules covering some of the more frequently encountered style issues. For other style questions, please refer to the Chicago Manual or its easy-to-use Q & A site.
