RUG Style Guide

Inevitably, every large institution develops preferences and jargon over time, and the University of Groningen (RUG) is no exception. Often, these terms and preferences can be obscure to outsiders, which is why the University Translation and Correction Service (UVC) of the Language Centre of the University of Groningen has been collecting examples over the years. The RUG Style Guide, created by the UVC, is designed to help staff of the University of Groningen to write better English, and to quickly provide them with answers to the most common questions and issues concerning style. We would like to emphasize that these tips have a strong RUG flavour, and often several alternatives can also be right.
