equally, equally as, just as

Equally as is non-standard English because the preposition as is unnecessary after the adverb equally.

  • Her photographs and her sister’s are equally good (not equally as good).
  • This map is more colourful, but the old one is equally accurate.

The phrase just as may often be substituted for equally.

  • This map is more colourful, but the old one is just as accurate.
