HPC Style Guides


Oak Ridge National Laboratory's (ORNL's) style is based on the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) and the Merriam-Webster (M-W) dictionary. Style choices specific to ORNL (i.e., exceptions to CMOS and M-W or information specific to ORNL and its efforts) can be found in ORNL's Publications and Style Guide.

The HPC style guides in this repository provide even more specific information for the organizations listed below and are maintained by technical editors from ORNL's Technical Communications team. Any other copies (e.g., Word or PDF) are deprecated.
