Content Style Guide

Since every St. Thomas publication represents the university, a consistent style must be maintained.

The Associated Press Stylebook is used to edit all publications produced through University Relations. Copies of the most recent stylebook are available for purchase at the St. Paul campus bookstore. AP StyleGuard software works with MS Word to identify correct AP style guide usage and is available for purchase through IRT.

When a question arises that cannot be answered using the AP stylebook, refer to the Little, Brown Handbook. For spelling, use the current edition of Webster’s New World College Dictionary.
