Lapidus International Style Guide


o Article titles and headings: Headline style (capital/lowercase). Capitalize only the first word and proper names e.g. A reflective piece on writing, not A Reflective Piece On Writing.

o Titles within a text should be in italics. e.g. I loved reading Pride & Prejudice.

o Use single quotes for speech. e.g. ‘Gosh,’ said Dora. ‘This is great.’ not “Gosh,” said Dora.

Write single digit numbers in words, and those 10 and above in figures. e.g. one, seven, 10, 78. Exceptions are in percentages.

o Write % not percent.

o Put a space before and after hyphens and slashes.

o One space after full stops.

o Use th or nd after dates. Write as September 22th 2019, not 22 Sept, or any other way.

o When abbreviating use periods. e.g. e.g. not eg, ml. not ml, Dr. not dr

o Use Harvard referencing – in the text refer to the name of the author and the year in brackets. e.g. Baker (2019) said that ‘bla bla bla.’ In the reference list use this format Last name, First Initial. (Year published). Title. City: Publisher, Page(s).
