Test Your IPFW Editorial Style

Sandra Michaels was the first person to correctly answer last week's puzzler, "In text, which title is correct for John Smith, who has earned a doctorate in biology: Dr. John Smith, Ph.D.; John Smith, Ph.D.; or Dr. John Smith?" John Smith, Ph.D. is correct. Do not use the honorific title Dr. in reference to an academic unless used in a direct quote. Dr. may be used in reference to a medical doctor, dentist, or veterinarian. Doctor status for nonmedical doctors is indicated with Ph.D., Ed.D., etc. after the name.


This week's question:  In text, which is correct?

  1. Bippus, Indiana
  2. Bippus, Ind.
  3. Bippus, IN
