Anthropology Department Paper and Thesis Style Students should follow The Chicago Manual of Style (with modifications) for all theses and papers in English. The text should be double-spaced, with one-inch margins at the top, bottom and right, and 1.5 inches on the left margin to allow for binding. Papers can have one inch margins all around. Students can use British or American spelling, but must be consistent throughout the whole document.
Citations should follow the in-text citation style, i.e. the Author (year: page#) format, e.g. (Marx 1964:57). Citations should not be in footnotes.
Guidelines for the References Cited section:
1) General format of information to be included in full references: Family name, given name. Year of publication. Title. Place of publication: Publisher. This is the style of major American publishers of anthropological books, such as the University of California Press and Harvard University Press.
2) Works should be listed in alphabetical order, by author’s family name. Do not put numbers before each work.
3) Titles: Book and journal titles should be italicized. Chapters in edited books or articles in journals should not be italicized, but given in quotation marks (except Chinese titles, which do not require quotation marks). For articles or chapters in edited volumes, the word “In” is capitalized and not in italics.
4) Unknown information: In the case of an author who is unknown, use Anon. If date of publication is unknown, use n.d. (meaning “no date” or date unknown).
5) For a thesis in English, Chinese references should be listed in alphabetical order together with the English references. Use romanization plus Chinese characters for the author’s name, but the title of an article or a book should only be in characters and an English translation (romanization is not necessary).
6) For a thesis in Chinese, Chinese references should be either in order of number of strokes or according to Pinyin alphabetical order. English references should be listed separately.
