UCR AP Style Guide 

University Relations uses the Associated Press (AP) Stylebook as a guide for journalistic copy. We've also assembled an extensive stylebook to provide guidance in editorial instances unique to UCR and higher education institutions that may differ from or aren't addressed by the AP Stylebook. The UCR Stylebook also highlights AP style guidelines frequently used at UCR.
