Using abbreviations to symbolize long words or commonly known titles is encouraged. However the abbreviations used should be uniform.

Country abbreviations

Some country abbreviations include periods while others do not.

Include periods

  • United States of America - should be abbreviated as U.S. with periods, not U.S.A. or US.
