Acceptable in all references for uniform resource locator; a standard web address.

  • For brevity, omit http:// in URLs. Just use www.missouri.edu, for example. Exception: Include https:// when necessary to identify a secure site.
  • Try to fit URLs on one line, but when necessary to break, do not break in the middle of a word. Break either before a period (so the reader does not read it as the end of a sentence) or after a slash:
  • University policies require all sites (except those of students, staff and faculty) to have an intuitive URL, one without ~. Example: journalism.missouri.edu, not www.missouri.edu/~jour.
