IU Communications maintains two style guides for use by the IU community: the Editorial Style Guide and the IU Web Style Guide.
The Editorial Style Guide, part of this website, 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.
The IU Web Style Guide is new, and provides guidance on writing for the web. (The IU Web Style Guide offers more than editorial advice; it’s 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.
