Style Guide


Digital File (PDF, 7.6 KB)


This guide is provided for researchers anticipating publication by the British Columbia Geological Survey Branch.  Perhaps more importantly, it is a reference for editors and typesetters which will help ensure consistency in style, usage and format in BC Geological Survey products.

This style manual, outlining the elements of good scientific writing and BC Geological Survey usage, has been written for the guidance of authors, editors, secretarial and publications staff.  Please review the guide before you start to write - this may save everyone many hours of needless work recovering from inadvertent mistakes.


All publications of the BC Geological Survey are available digitally, free of charge, from this website.
