The Northern Illinois University Editorial Style Guide was approved by the Editorial Style Guide Steering Committee Nov. 25, 2019. It will be reviewed and updated annually by the committee.
The Northern Illinois University Editorial Style Guide is a compilation of university-specific editorial standards. It is meant to be used as the first resource, in addition to the AP Stylebook and Webster’s New World College Dictionary, by university personnel across internal and external communication modalities.
Students are expected to follow the standards that are provided by their professors.
This guide was collaboratively assembled by members of the NIU Editorial Style Guide Steering Committee.
