1 1 DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY STYLE GUIDE FOR HONOURS THESIS WRITERS In judging and grading honours theses, the Department of Anthropology evaluates style as well as intellectual content. Therefore, the Department has prepared this style guide for students. Significant departures from the guide must be approved by the Department Chairperson upon recommendation of your thesis committee chairperson. The guide is intended to apply to the first and final drafts of your thesis. Where appropriate, you should adapt it to your written proposal and progress report. Elements of the guide are intended to conform to the requirements of the Patrick Power Library Archives. General Considerations Your thesis must be word processed on one side of the page only and on good quality, North American letter-size paper. The left margin must measure 1.5, or 3.8 cm.; the right, top, and bottom margins, 1, or 2.5 cm.. Page numbers, headers, and footers must be within these margin measurements. Figures and tables must not exceed the margins. Double spacing is generally required. Exceptions are: extended quotations, which should be single spaced and indented on both sides (for further details, see the discussion below); notes, which should be single spaced (individual notes should be separated by two spaces); references cited, which should be single spaced, each entry separated by two spaces; and captions on figures and title pages, which should be single spaced. Use a standard font style, preferably Times New Roman, and a standard font size, preferably 12. The font size should not increase at any point in your thesis. The only acceptable use of decreased font size would be in the production of extensive tables or in subscripts and superscripts, which should be used very sparingly. Do not right-justify, or flush right, any part of your thesis. There are several excellent published guides to writing formal prose. For a recommendation, ask your thesis committee chairperson. The Saint Mary s University Writing Centre can also help. Identification of Sections Sections of your thesis should be ordered as follows. Each section should begin on a new page.

2 2 Title page. The title page must include the following information: title of thesis, name of author, degree to be awarded, the words Saint Mary s University, the words Copyright [author s name, year] or [author s name, year], date of submission (title page date and signature page date must be the same), and names of thesis committee members (without signatures). Examples of title pages may be viewed at the Patrick Power Library Archives web site at < Signature page. A page with the names of your thesis committee members and their original signatures (not photocopied) is required. This page must include all the elements that are on the title page, as well as the signatures. Examples of signature pages may be viewed at the Patrick Power Library Archives web site at < Acknowledgements. Include here the names of individuals and organizations that have helped you write your thesis, including those who provided access to research materials and served on your thesis committee. Abstract. The abstract must not exceed 300 words. It must be single spaced and include the word Abstract, as well as the author s name, the thesis title, and the date of submission (title page and signature page date must be the same). Examples of abstracts may be viewed at the Patrick Power Library Archives web site at < Text. Each chapter, but not chapter section, should begin on a new page. Notes. Follow American Anthropologist style. Notes are not to appear at the foot of a page. Rather, they are to be numbered consecutively on a separate page, these numbers being keyed to superscript numbers in the text, e.g., Clyde Kluckhohn s statement Notes are not to be used as citation references. They are intended, rather, for making observations that are peripheral to some more central argument in the text proper. Information directly pertinent to the thesis should appear in the text. Use notes sparingly. References Cited. All references cited in the text should be listed. Publications not cited in the text should not be included this is not a bibliography. References cited should begin on a separate page. They should be single spaced, each entry separated by two spaces. They are to be listed alphabetically by last name of senior author, and chronologically for two or more titles by the same author. See the Appendix for examples. Appendices. These are to be labeled consecutively with upper-case letters: Appendix A, Appendix B, Appendix C, etc. If your thesis has one appendix, it should be labeled simply Appendix. Each appendix should be titled. Reference Citation in the Text References are to be placed in the body of the text, not in notes. Following a quotation or statement specific or controversial enough to need a reference, the citation is placed in

3 3 parentheses, with the author s name, the year of publication of the work quoted or referred to, and the page or pages cited, e.g., (Hymes 1980:122), (Boas 1983: ), or (Beals et al 1961:21-22). If the author of the quotation is clear from the text, then the sentence concluding the reference should cite only the year of publication and the page(s), e.g., (1984: ). Appropriate credit must be given for figures and tables that derive from a previously published source (see the section on copyrighted material below). Such credit should appear immediately after the caption in parentheses, e.g., (After Hockett 1965). Hockett 1965 should then appear in references cited. Occasionally it will be appropriate to make in-text citation of one or another form of personal communication to you. The citation should be of this form: communicator s name, form of communication, and year of communication, all enclosed in parentheses, e.g., (James Tuck, personal letter, 2006). You should consult with your honours thesis committee to determine the proper way to cite internet and other electronic references. Pagination All pages (except the title and signature pages) on which any typing, tables, images, or drawings appear must be numbered. Beginning with the first page of the text proper, number all pages consecutively with Arabic numerals. Number all pages preceding the first text page with lowercase Roman numerals. Numbers are to appear at the centre of the top of the page within the page margin. Subheadings Major subheadings should be typed in upper-case letters, centred on the page, with extra space above and below. Use of second-level subheadings is not encouraged, but if they are essential for clarity, they should be typed in upper-case and lower-case letters, underlined, flush with the left margin, and with extra space above and below. Do not use subheadings consisting of numbers only. Quotations Direct quotations exceeding four lines of typing should be set off from the text by indenting five spaces from the left margin and five spaces from the right, omitting quotation marks. Use singlespaced typing. If you add material, enclose it in square brackets, not parentheses. Emphasis (in italics) should be identified as in original or added. Parentheses should enclose the citation of source at the end of a quotation if it has not already been given in the text. Omissions in a quotation are indicated by ellipsis, using three dots (periods) where one or more words are omitted. Should this occur at the end of a sentence, a period must follow, e.g.,... [Kroeber] emphasized... the effect that the introduction of agriculture had upon population density.... Spelling

4 4 You should refer to an accepted standard Canadian dictionary. If two or more spellings are given, you should use the first listed. In all quotations and titles of books, articles, and other sources, use the original spelling. Insert [sic] immediately after a word that is misspelled in the original. When abbreviations are used, they carry periods: B.C., mm., i.e., etc., with the exception of the most familiar acronyms, such as UNESCO. Italicize Linnaean biological names but not their derivatives: Australopithecus, but australopithecine. Italicize non-english words such as passim, sui generis, and ex post facto, unless abbreviated. Numbers Numbers from one to ten are spelled out in the text unless they are part of an enumeration, such as infants, 14 children, and 5 adults..., or in an arithmetical expression such as... a frequency of 1 in 18. In referring to parts of books, numbers are not spelled out (chapter 6 or page 5). Century designations use numerals, and century is not capitalized, as in 17 th century. A decade is referred to as the 1940s, not the 1940 s or the forties. When citing inclusive pages, do not drop digits (pages , not ), but when citing a span of years within the same century, drop digits ( ). Measurements Measurements should be in metric units: 34 km., 7.3. m., 69 kg., etc. You may add an English equivalent in parentheses: (3.5 miles, 24 ft., 7.2 lbs., etc). English terms may be used alone when used in a general, not an exact, sense, e.g., Cultivators seeking more acreage... or Many miles of coastline... Measurements in quotations should be left in their original form. Proofreading The first and final drafts of your thesis must show evidence of thorough proofreading. Neither draft should manifest misspellings, errors in typography or punctuation, discrepancies in numbering (in pagination, charts, table of contents, etc.), or flaws in composition such as run-on sentences, inappropriate selection of tenses, or failure in subject-verb agreement. Proofreading refers to the total process of recognizing and correcting such errors. In this connection, you are reminded that your final thesis will be graded for both intellectual content and prose style. Copyrighted Material If you intend to include and reproduce material that you did not write or create yourself (such as questionnaires, graphs, tables, maps, illustrations, web pages, etc), you may need to contact the copyright holder and obtain permission to include and reproduce it. For copyright guidelines and policies, consult the document titled Honours Thesis

5 5 Submission Guidelines (library archives), available on the Department of Anthropology web pages. When the document opens, click on the link titled Theses, then the link titled in-depth copyright information for students, then the tab titled Theses and MRP. Obtaining formal written permission to use copyrighted material, or even finding out whether formal written permission is required, can be a time-consuming process. Start early, and keep good records. Research Ethics Board If you used human subjects as part of your research, you will have obtained a certificate of approval from the University s Research Ethics Board. The original or a copy of the certificate must be submitted with your thesis Submission to Patrick Power Library When your thesis has been approved and signed by your thesis committee and you have complied with the formatting requirements, at the University Archives on the third floor of the Library, submit a single file PDF version of your thesis to Submit separately the signature page as well as any applicable documentation (Research Ethics Board certificate, restriction letter, copyright letters, etc.). If your thesis contains confidential or sensitive material, you may wish to have access it restricted. You must submit this request in writing in a letter addressed to the University Librarian, and the letter should be included with your submission to the Library Archives. The request should specify the length of the restriction (up to a maximum of five years). Restricted theses will not be added to the Library Institutional Repository during the restricted period.
