Branding & Publishing guides

The following guides have been developed for researchers and staff working within the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and can be shared with partners.

Branding and Acknowledgment guidelines

The guidelines linked below have been updated for 2017. The CCAFS branding guide includes instructions on correctly sizing the CCAFS logo and correct font and colour profiles. These should be shared with designers producing CCAFS-branded materials.

In August 2012, CCAFS updated its branding guide following the adoption of a new branding policy from the CGIAR Consortium. The CCAFS branding guide should be read alongside the CGIAR branding guide and toolkit.

Publishing guidelines

The CCAFS publishing policy is aligned with the CGIAR Consortium's Open Access principles. We provide guidance on how to publish in open access peer-reviewed journals, as well as how to publish in CCAFS' own publications series. CCAFS has adopted ICRAF's style guide for writers and editors, which guides how to format references, and proper language usage.
