UCLA Health Style guide

The UCLA Health Style Guide is a reference guide for anyone 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 AP Stylebook, as it has been the policy of the organization to use its style guide. We have changed some of the guidelines to be more relevant to our organization’s needs. This guide is a supplement to the AP Stylebook and does not replace it.

If you have questions about 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.
