Bylines

If the article or column is written by a staff writer or regular contributor and his or her name is already listed somewhere in the print publication, such as the masthead, include only the name.

Example: By Jake Woods

If the piece is written by someone other than a staff writer or regular contributor and requires a byline, include information about the author at the end of the article.

Example: By Louise Chan (under headline)

At the end of the article, write the following in italics:

Louise Chan is a third-year sociology student at Simon Fraser University.

In the case of aq magazine or specialty publications, a byline for an alumnus is to include the program and year of graduation.

Example: By Preeya Singh, computing science, ’89

Web articles that include a byline should identify the author.

Example (for staff members of marketing communications):

By Angelo Van Nuys, staff writer (under the headline)

Example for non-staff:

  • By Sophie Smith (under the headline)
  • At the end of the article, write the following in italics:
  • Sophie Smith is a Vancouver freelance writer.

In all cases where a second writer has provided supplementary files for the story, the writer may be acknowledged at the end of the story in italics.

Example: With files from Bruce Harper
