Mnemonics article structure

Dr Jeremy Jones et al.

Mnemonics articles are a special type of article with specific style requirements.

The title of the article should:

  • relate to the topic that the mnemonic relates to, not the actual mnemonic, e.g. Salter-Harris classification, not SALTR
  • relate to the specifics of the mnemonic, e.g. branches of the facial nerve, not facial nerve
  • be suffixed with (mnemonic) e.g. broad ligament content (mnemonic)

The actual mnemonics should be added as synonyms, but not included in the listing.


Introductory paragraph with mnemonic in bold and a link to the topic of the mnemonic. The initial paragraph will introduce the mnemonics in a bullet-list:

  • first mnemonic
  • if there is a second mnemonic it will be here


Mnemonic name (if there is more than one)

If the mnemonic is alliterative, e.g. Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, To Feel A.... there is no need to repeat it again in the heading.

  • M: letter in bold
  • N: colon punctuation in bold
  • E: no other bold in the rest of the bullet
  • M: link to appropriate articles
Second mnemonic

An introductory little statement may be helpful to explain the specifics of the mnemonic, e.g. ordering of the list by incidence.

  • the bulleted list
