Big Grin USC editorial design information
This on line edition of the University Publications Editorial Style Guide includes a few changes and additions, which we show all through with a image for easy reference. Usc Content Model Guide includes more about how to flirt with it.

Some of those changes address issues unique to Content and are indicated with a symbol.

We first revealed the Editorial Style Guide in March 1996 to offer consistency among the several offices throughout the University and among people of our own office. We also wanted to advise our customers of the guidelines we would use when editing copy presented to the office.

You'll find available many instructions to writing style, so why couldnt we only choose one particular? As with any organization, there are certain language conventions that are unique to the University of South Carolina. An individual record which has these exhibitions helps every uni-t of every university to regularly and correctly represent its parent organizationthe University of South Carolina.

As the guide was developed by us, it also became clear that many grammatical issues occur each day and that a fast mention of these would be beneficial. For answers to other issues of spelling and type, we consult the Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual, the American Heritage Dictionary, and Websters New Collegiate Dictionary.

Needless to say, issues of style and consumption continue to develop, and as they do we shall continue to examine and update the information. We encourage you to become familiar with the Editorial Style Guide and to apply its principles to any text you write on behalf of the University. Please contact us with your comments or any matters you feel must be addressed in future editions.
