The resolution

Whereas, CZ wishes to promote a professional image, which requires some consistency of style and format of articles;

Whereas, different disciplines may require different approaches, thus ruling out a common standard for all articles, even within the same workgroup;

Whereas, general guidance for authors remains limited, and is easier to develop within workgroups;

Resolved, That Citizendium will develop a range of workgroup stylesheets for the guidance of authors and editors

Method of execution

The Council will call for a lead editor in each workgroup, to oversee and develop the stylesheet or stylesheets for that workgroup
