Resource of the Week: AP Stylebook Online

Resource: AP Stylebook Online

Find out more about it: from Diana Nichols or in the Journalism 101, JOUR 3330: Editing, and JOUR 2310/2311: Introduction to Multiplatform Reporting and Writing course guides.

The AP Stylebook Online is a keyword searchable, digital version of the Associated Press Stylebook. It is frequently updated with new AP style decisions, contains phonetic pronunciations accompanied by audio files, topical guides for current events, and a style FAQ. Ohio University students and faculty have access to the Stylebook both on and off campus via the web, which is great for when you don’t have a hard copy of the Stylebook at hand. 

Students will find the AP Stylebook Online useful for studying for style quizzes and learning how to write in the most current AP style. Students working on campus publications will also find it helpful to have the Stylebook at hand when writing. Faculty teaching AP style in Journalism classes can create and execute quizzes and show AP style examples during class.
