Selected Formatting Guidelines

  1. Use the En-dash (–; Alt+0150) to separate words or clauses, not em-dash.
  2. Use the US style of punctuating quotations. This means:
    1. Double quotation marks (”) for initial quotations and single quotation marks (‘’) for quotations within initial quotations,
    2. Punctuation that is not part of the quotation (mainly commas and full stops) is written before the closing quotation marks. This does not apply when the quotation is immediately followed by a citation in parentheses; in this case, the punctuation is placed after the citation. 
  3. When giving a page range (e.g., in citations), use the En-dash between the values, and:
    • include all digits in both values: pp. 97–117.
      • However, when the second value is in the same hundred (thousand, million, etc.) as the first, exclude the first digit in the second value: pp. 144–57; pp. 1144–58.
        • This does not apply to situations when the second value is in the first decade of the given hundred. In that case, include all digits: pp. 200–209.
