British vs American English

Dr Daniel J Bell and Dr Tim Luijkx et al.

There are numerous spelling differences between British English (as spoken and written in the United Kingdom) and American English (as spoken and written in the United States), and, as stated elsewhere, we accept having a mix of British and American spelling on the site while preferring the British spelling for articles' titles and content in our continuous aim for uniformity. The choice of British or American English for cases is up to contributor preference, however please ensure you stick to the same for the entire case.
