Editorial guidelines

Liverpool John Moores University has a set of approved editorial guidelines to ensure consistency and accuracy across internal and external written communications.

This consistency is important for us to protect, manage and enhance our brand. It is intended to help and support colleagues who are writing on behalf of the university.

The guidance applies to non-academic writing for LJMU staff and should be applied in full. This is not optional guidance – this is the required manner and style of writing for the university.

External publishers of academic work may ask you to follow their own house style guide.

The Corporate Communications team will review and update this guide as necessary. If you have any comments or questions about the guide, please email press@ljmu.ac.uk.
