    Pacific Editorial Style Guide

    Every organization has its own guidelines and style for producing web or print copy, and University of the Pacific is no exception. While the university primarily follows Associated Press style, some additional guidelines are unique to University of the Pacific. Our Pacific Editorial Style Guide gives writers an overview of editorial style for Pacific's website and publications; if you see a question that is not addressed, please contact Paul Rapp.
