Editoral style guide

UCI's Office of Strategic Communications & Public Affairs has compiled a style guide to help achieve a consistent image across the variety of written communication materials that represent UCI, including brochures, news releases, periodicals and websites. To view UCI's editorial guide, click here.

A few notes on the most frequently addressed style & editorial issues:

  • Use "UCI" in communications to familiar audiences. Use "University of California, Irvine" with unfamiliar audiences. (More here).
  • Double-check all faculty titles and student majors using www.directory.uci.edu.
  • Professor titles are capitalized when preceding their names (Assistant Professor of Mathematics Robert Pelayo, Professor of Mathematics Robert Pelayo) and are not capitalized when following their names (Robert Pelayo, assistant professor of mathematics). Exception – Chancellor’s designations, Chair designations, and Distinguished Professor designations are capitalized (Eric Saltzman, Distinguished Professor of Earth System Science; Eric Rignot, Chancellor’s Professor of Earth System Science, James Randerson, Ralph J. and Carol M. Cicerone Professor of Earth System Science).
  • Majors are not capitalized unless they have a proper noun (majored in chemistry; majors in Earth system science).
  • Degrees are abbreviated as follows (notice MBA is the outlier): M.A., B.A., M.F.A., MBA, Ph.D., M.D.
  • Films/movies are in quotes.
  • Articles are in quotes.
  • Titles of poems are in quotes.
  • Books and magazine titles are italicized.
  • Podcast titles are in quotes.
  • Programs listed with their full title are capitalized: Department of Earth System Science.
  • After first mention of a person’s full name, they are afterward referred to by their last name.
  • Single space between sentences.
