Section 4: Guidance on Formats and Styles for Transport Scotland Reports

Transport Scotland's Social Research Publications conform to a house style. There are two separate styles, one for Research Reports and the second for Research Summaries, both of which are outlined below.

Research Reports

We do not have a template for our Research Report publications, but instead ask that the following conventions are adhered to: firstly that a coversheet is included as specified below; secondly that there is a contents page which links to the relevant sections; thirdly that there is clear use of headings, chapter headings, and sub headings; finally that reports use the fonts, table styles and other elements of the house style detailed in template 1.

The template for our Research Summary publications is given in template 2, and we ask that it is strictly adhered to.
