Two tips that will improve the lives of all students and researchers in the Humanities and Social SciencesPosted: August 16, 2014
A recent question on Linked-in asked how important the formatting guides for journals are in preparing submissions.
Although this question was about submitting to journals, its context is relevant to all students and researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities (although the problem also exists in the sciences, the solutions there are in some cases different). Humanities and Social Science study in University is largely about the collection of bibliography and the presentation of findings in written form. And that invariably involves questions of formatting: different disciplines and even different journals (or for students, instructors) within a discipline can require work to be submitted in quite different styles.
