Style Guide

Our tips and style guide include help on how to write academic degree names, how to engage in academic correspondence, and how to use gender-sensitive language in English. You will also find helpful advice on how to write an out-of-office message in English. These style guidelines are available to provide assistance and are not intended to be applied rigidly.

We use US-American English and follow the Chicago Manual of Style as much as possible. Additionally, the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary is a reliable resource for spelling questions, including specific examples of how to use English terms.

Here, you can find our style guide in German. (JGU login required)
