Phys 280 Style and Format Guide

Following a writing assignment's specifications of style and format precisely is an important technical writing skill to develop. This skill communicates that you pay attention to the details (in writing and elsewhere), and there are few fields where the details are as vitally important as Nuclear Weapons and Arms Control. The PHYS 280 writing assignments have a number of important guidelines that you must follow exactly to receive full credit. The guidelines are perhaps abstruse simply because the guidelines for NSF or DOD are as well—and they are different from each other. Guidelines that apply to most writing assignments are described here, while additional ones are included in the individual assignment prompts.
