I've asked this same question in the past, and the list of links I've been variously pointed to are:

http://community.schemewiki.org/?variable-naming-convention (seems to say it all, as far as I can see)
http://www.wisdomandwonder.com/link/952/lisp-style-rules (brief)
http://mumble.net/~campbell/scheme/style.txt (interesting, but probably indicating it'd be best not to be seated next to the author on a long journey)

Best wishes,
