Status: This is an official style guideline.

Style for Part Numbers

Alert.png Attention! This guideline is specific to Part numbering. General rules for appending numbering to a title are found in the Series numbers guideline.

When a track is one of a series of identically named tracks with a defined order, separate the Part Number from the Track Title by a comma and a space.

“TrackTitle, Part 1”

“TrackTitle, Part 1: PartName”

This guideline is a specification of the more general Series numbers guideline. See that page for principles (especially in which cases Artist intent overrides this guideline).

Alternative names for parts may be used, such as Section, or their non‐English equivalents.

  • Note that if the title of a track is just “Part 1” or similar then this guideline should not apply, because then “Part 1” is considered being the Main Title of the track and not the Part Number.
  • Also note that the Abbreviations guideline says that you should not use abbreviations in titles. So “Pt.” should always be expanded to “Part” (assuming the Release Language is English).
  • Also note that the Part Name must be formatted according to the Subtitles guideline.

Example

  • Flares, Part 3
  • 09-15-00, Part One
  • Creepin', Parts 1 & 2”—Two numbers are noted using an ampersand “&”, the part indication in its plural form.
  • Train to Lamy Suite, Parts 1–3”—More than 2 numbers, which are in sequence are separated by an en dash “–”, the part indication in its plural form.
  • This Is a Trackname, Parts 1, 4 & 5”—More than 2 numbers, which are not in sequence are separated by a comma “,” and the last one is added with an ampersand “&”, the part indication in its plural form.
