Format & Documentation Practices
Answer the following questions to explore a documentation style of your choice (ideally, the one used in your field/department). This site has compiled links to resources on a variety of different documentation styles: http://gsrc.ucla.edu/gwc/resources/citation-styles.html. You should also look closely at your 5 articles to see how documentation and format are used.
1. What documentation style will you be working with for this and future assignments? (Ideally, this should be the style used in your department and used in your 5 articles.) Find an online resource to help you with the documentation style and paste the link below.
2. What does an in-text citation look like for this documentation style? Are signal phrases/reporting verbs required? Which tense is used in the signal phrase? Give two examples below (from your collection of articles).
3. What does a Works Cited/References/Bibliography look like? What information does it contain and how is the information organized on the page?
4. Describe the format used in your documentation style and/or collection of articles. Consider the following elements as well as anything else you notice about the format described in your documentation style’s guidelines and/or the collection of articles you are working with.
a. Is there a title page? How is it arranged?
b. What does the body of the paper look like? What are the standard margins? What is the line spacing (single, double, etc.?)
c. Are there headings and subheadings within the text? How are they formatted (bold, italics, centered, etc.)?
d. Are page numbers included? Where on page, and when do they start (1st page, 2nd page)?
e. What font and font size are used? Is this consistent throughout the text?
f. How are figures/graphics/tables/etc. included in the text? How are they labeled/referred to? Do labels go above or below the graphics?
g. Are there any appendices, abstracts, or tables of contents? How are these elements arranged?
If your articles include several different formats/layouts, look for commonalities and/or explain why you think the formats differ (type of publication, year, audience, etc.)
5. Imagine that you want to cite a work in an anthology that was written by multiple authors. What should the entry on the Works Cited/References/Bibliography look like?
6. Imagine that you want to cite an Internet site in the text of your essay. What should the in-text citation and Works Cited/References/Bibliography look like?
7. Imagine that you want to cite information you learned in a class lecture. Is this possible? What should the in-text citation and Works Cited/References/Bibliography look like?
8. Finally, used what you’ve learned here to create Works Cited/References/Bibliography entries for each of the sources you’re working with for your Annotated Bibliography assignment. Include these citations in your first draft.
