The Emory Libraries Citing Your Sources Research Guide provides information about why to cite sources, how to avoid plagiarism, how to avoid common mistakes, and a list of style manuals. Anthropologists frequently use the Chicago Style (also see the Quick Guide), the American Psychological Association Style (APA), or the American Journal of Physical Anthropology Style. Check with your instructor to find out which style you should use.
You can also visit websites with basic guidelines on how to use common style formats. Some good websites include:
If you are using a citation manager (e.g. Endnote or Zotero), select the appropriate output style. The citation manager should automatically format your citations and bibliography, but don't forget to check it for accuracy.
Data citation is straightforward in many cases. The citation must include the title, author, date, version, and a persistent identifier (e.g. DOI, Uniform Resource Name, Handle System). Including the checksum or a Universal Numeric Fingerprint is also recommended (allows future researchers to verify data integrity). Refer to your style manual for guidelines on citation formatting.
Bibliographic management software can save a lot of time and frustration. Start organizing as soon as possible!
Zotero and Endnote are both excellent tools for organizing bibliographies and creating properly formatted citations. Zotero is freely available at their website and Emory has a site license for EndNote. You can obtain a copy by downloading the software from Emory's Software Express site (Emory network ID required). Mendeley, Papers, and Citavi are other popular software options.
Student Digital Life studios support video, photo, and audio production, practicing and recording presentations, and online conferencing and streaming. See the Production Studio Overview and the links below:
If you are conducting research that involves "human subjects" then your project might need to go through the IRB process.
