Bullet points and lists

Introduce bullet point lists with a colon and capitalise the first word of each point.

If the point is a full sentence punctuate it as such, otherwise only put a full stop at the end of the list.

Long lists of bullet points are as hard to read as long paragraphs. Use bullet points to simplify your writing.

Bullet point lists should be formatted like this:

  • Introduced with a colon
  • Concise sentences, short phrases or single words
  • Start each with a capital letter
  • Stylistically consistent
  • 6 items or fewer
  • Finish with a full stop.
