Citation format

At the base of each entry you will find a citation which gives author, title, publication date and internet address, laid out in both MLA and Chicago formats. These citations can be copied directly into your bibliography.

Because all of our entries are written and edited by professional scholars and writers who are respected as experts in their field, they are an appropriate resource to quote and cite, as opposed to other resources where authorship and provenance may not be clear, and wiki-based resources where the writing may well have been produced by people who lack first-hand knowledge of the material and are merely quoting the words of others.
