OpenHIE Editorial Style Guide
The following table is meant to demonstrate and provide details of the preferred style for OpenHIE communications.
The OpenHIE organization will be referred to as OpenHIE (pronounced Open H I E) and OHIE (pronounced O-Hi).
Date & Time
Date Month Year
Ex. 1 January 2022
To align more with international preferences, times will be posted Date Month and Year rather than the American writing of Month, Day and Year.
Please note: This is a new implementation into the secretariat communication posting. We hope community members will be patient with us as we make transitions across our community pages and communications.
a.m. & p.m.
Numerals vs. written out
Omit colon and zeros for on-the-hour times
12-hour clock format
Written either "from X to X" or "X-X"
Ex. 9-10:30 p.m. or from 9 to 10:30 p.m.
The 12-hour clock (with a.m. and p.m. notations) will be used in order to best avoid confusion across time zones for meeting organizers.
Please note: If there is significant interest in moving community listings to the 24-hour clock, we will do our best to make those changes. Be sure to let us know if you prefer the 24-hour listing on our communications via the contact form or community forum.
Other time zones are encouraged to be listed
Ex. 8-10:30 a.m. (EST) / 1-3:30 p.m. (UTC)
Communications should be listed in multiple time zones. We hope to generally post EST/EDT and UTC time zones as the secretariat largely lives in the Eastern Standard & Eastern Dayloight time zone (EST & EDT) and the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time zone will be used to be mindful of our universal audience.
Other time zones are encouraged to be listed in events, most especially when a meeting hosts a large number of participants from the same time zone.
EST vs. EDT
Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) is a North American time zone in use from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November during Daylight Saving Time (DST). Eastern Standard Time (EST) is used during the remainder of the year.
