Style Guide for Authors

To aid authors in preparing their manuscripts, here is a short style guide. It is not comprehensive but addresses the most commonly asked questions about style. However, because The Forum for Family and Consumer Issues (FFCI) is written for presentation on the Web, and this brief style guide addresses most of what authors need to know to facilitate this process. Keep in mind that a Web page may be viewed on a variety of devices (computers, cell phones, PDAs, Web TV, projectors) using a wide variety of browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, text-only). The settings on these devices and browsers can affect the way a Web page is presented. For additional information, see the list of links at the end of this page.

NOTE: It is essential that articles published in FFCI conform to NC State Web page accessibility regulation. All information (text, tables, graphics, image, multimedia) must be made accessible to persons with disabilities.
