Editorial Style Guide

The UALR Editorial Style Guide provides a quick reference tool to help university communicators write with a common voice. By adhering to this style, university communications reflect a consistent use of style, organization, and terminology.

Members of the university community should adopt these guidelines when writing text for printed materials, the web, news articles, etc. And as always, copywriters are encouraged to refer to UALR’s Brand Positioning in university communications.

Please note that this style guide serves a supplement to the official style manual for UALR, the Associated Press Stylebook. Consult this manual and the Webster’s New World Dictionary for items not covered on this site.
