Georgia Tech's editorial standards are the rules regarding the mechanics of written communication, which helps our large and diverse campus community present our brand in a consistent way.
On request, Institute Communications reviews written communications for consistency and preferred style relating to issues such as capitalization, punctuation, and proper word usage. We do not intend to alter the author’s manner of expression.
Editorial Style Guide
The Institute Editorial Style Guide addresses some of the most frequently encountered style issues — most typically regarding capitalization, punctuation, and proper word usage — and provides guidance for instances when many possibilities exist.
The style guide should be used as a reference for all written materials, although some variation in our established policy may be necessary (at the discretion of the author/editor).
Regardless of what you are communicating or your audience, you will often need to include general information about Georgia Tech. The boilerplate copy is designed to provide you with accurate and relevant information about the Institute that will appeal to a wide variety of audiences.
This copy should be used verbatim as an addendum to communications materials such as press releases, feature stories, and news articles.
