Publications style guide

About the style guide

This style guide is designed to promote accuracy and consistency in the writing of UTS publications. The publications team has developed this guide for all university written documents, whether online or in print.

It is an editorial reference for staff to solve common issues, such as when to capitalise, how to abbreviate the names of universities and how to refer to courses and subjects.

We consider the style guide a work in progress and will update it regularly. Please contact us with your feedback, questions or suggestions.

Finding information

You can browse the style guide by using the A–Z index or browse by the style guide categories:


The following references were primarily used in developing the style guide.

  • Style manual for authors, editors and printers (2002)
  • Macquarie Dictionary (2013).
