ellipsis ( … ):
Use an ellipsis (plural “ellipses”) to indicate the deletion of one or more words when condensing quotes. Be careful not to distort the meaning when shortening quotes. In general, treat an ellipsis as a three-letter word constructed with three periods and two spaces, as shown above. For complete details of punctuating ellipses, see AP.
See brackets ([/]) above for words inserted in a quotation.
email (not “e-mail” or “Email” or “E-mail”):
In directories, no need to preface email addresses with “email.”
When referring to UC Santa Cruz endowed chairs, use the full formal name (“The Ida Benson Lynn Endowed Chair in Ocean Health”). When referring to the chair holder, use the following abbreviated form that incorporates the donor’s last name and the area of study: “James Zachos, the Lynn Professor of Ocean Health.” Note that some chairs use “in” and some use “for” in the title. For a complete list of UC Santa Cruz endowed chairs, see http://news.ucsc.edu/awards/endowed-chairs.html
Use “Narrative Evaluation System” (specific to UC Santa Cruz) in a historical context only. Lowercase short and general forms: “narrative evaluations,” “evaluation system.”
