Bristol Style Guidelines

In general, the college Marketing & Communications department follows The Associated Press (AP) Stylebook. We have taken certain liberties based on general practice in higher education, established common usage and our brand guidelines. The Bristol Guideline Sheet is meant to be a reference that will provide consistency across the college for general materials that are being produced for a variety of audiences (e.g. Bristol Weekly articles, email messages that are going out to the college community, articles that are being written for internal marketing and promotional publications). These guidelines are not necessarily meant to be used for academic journals, scholarly literature, grant writing, creative promotional materials or other sources that may have their own specific requirements and style guide. View the Bristol Guideline Style Sheet for clarification around common usage and changes that have been adopted outside the AP stylebook guidelines. The information is not meant to be all-encompassing.
