Queen's style guide now available
The first Queen’s University Style Guide is now available, both online and in PDF form.
The style guide, issued by University Communications, provides quick reference to important information about the university’s writing guidelines and writing style. It covers topics ranging from capitalization to the use of inclusive language.
“The guide is the result of extensive consultations with communication officers and others involved in communications across the university,” says Michael Fraser, Chief Communications Officer. “It’s intended to clarify style and best writing practices, and will help the university project a unified image through its various communication products.”
The reference document is meant to be a guide for Queen’s communications professionals and other employees who are involved in disseminating information on behalf of their unit/department and/or the university. It is not meant to be an academic writing guide.
