UCLA Health’s Style Guide is a reference guide for anyone within the organization who wishes to write or publish digital or print copy for the organization.
Much of what you will find in this style guide is from The Associated Press Stylebook, as it has been the policy of the organization to use their style guide. We have changed some of the guidelines so that they are more relevant to our organization’s needs. This guide is a supplement to The Associated Press Stylebook, and does not replace it.
If you have questions on spelling, punctuation or other fine points of grammar, refer to this guide. Use it like a dictionary as well as a guideline for how to write for UCLA Health’s publications-- digital or print. Items are listed alphabetically, and include definitions, how to pluralize, and how to use items on a second reference.
