We regularly update the University’s Editorial Style Guide to reflect your feedback and the ever-changing needs of our staff.

One area that many staff often find tricky is University terminology, which can cover areas as diverse as how to refer to the University to our style for degree names and job titles.

We recently gave this advice a not-too-extreme makeover.

So how did we make it better for you? We streamlined the existing content to make it easier to read, expanded our list of commonly used terms and added more examples of how to apply our style.

But our biggest new additions are sections on honorifics (Dr, Associate Professor etc) and postnominals (academic qualifications that appear after a person’s name, eg Dr Alex Palmer BSc ANU MSc Griffith PhD Sydney).

We hope you find our enhanced University terminology advice useful. If you have questions or suggestions for how we can make it even better please feel free to contact me.
