All written assignments must follow these style requirements
- All written assignments must follow these style requirements:
Margins and spacing for written assignments: the left margin of any assignment should not be wider than 1.25”; the right margin of any assignment must not be wider than 1.25”. [The same margins used on this style sheet.] Top and bottom margins should be approximately 1 ½ to 2 inches.
All written assignments should be double spaced.
Font: In order to assure a standard paper length, please use 12 point font.
Quotations: All essays must contain quotations from assigned readings. These quotations can take the form of individual words, phrases, single sentences, or longer passages.
*If you quote a single sentence, use the following form: “The production of life…now appears as a double relationship: one the one hand as a natural, on the other as a social relationship.”
*Do not italicize quotations.
*As a general rule, if the passage cited is longer than a three short sentences, it should take the form of a block quotation. A single very long sentence might require a block quote, just as four very short sentences might not require block quotation. Use your best judgment.
Do not use boldface and do not use italics when block quoting a passage (unless a word is boldfaced or italicized in the original).
Citation form: Every quotation must be followed immediately by a citation: (Author, Year: Page #). For example:
“The production of life…now appears as a double relationship: one the one hand as a natural, on the other as a social relationship” (Marx and Engels, 1988: 50).
Further information and instruction concerning essay style will be provided in class.
Works Cited Page and Reference Style:
The following guidelines are based upon the citation style used by the professional journal Critical Sociology (Sage Publications).
All written assignments must include a works cited page. List the authors in alphabetical order. For each author, list their works in chronological order, the earliest work first.
All book citations must include the author’s last name, first initial, date of publication, title, place of publication, publisher. For example:
Cooley C (1922) Human Nature and The Social Order. Revised Edition. New York, NY: Charles Scribner.
For citations to texts with multiple authors, use the following form:
Marx K and Engels F (1988) The German Ideology: Part One. New York, NY: International Publishers.
When citing a journal article, include the author’s last name, first initial(s), date of publication, title, journal title, volume, issue, page numbers. For example:
Peirce CS (1868) Some Consequences of Four Incapacities. The Journal of Speculative Philosophy 2(3): 140-157.
When the same author has multiple texts that appear the same year, use an (a), (b), (c), etc., to signify the chronological order. For example:
Peirce CS (1868a) Questions Concerning Certain Faculties Claimed For Man. The Journal of Speculative Philosophy 2(2): 103-114.
Peirce CS (1868b) Some Consequences of Four Incapacities. The Journal of Speculative Philosophy 2(3): 140-157.
When citing an article that appears in a book, include the author’s last name, first initial(s), date of publication, article title, book author, book title, place of publication, publisher, page numbers. For example:
Mauss M (1979) Body Techniques. In: Mauss M, Sociology and Psychology: Essays. London, U.K.: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 95-123.
The separate ‘works cited’ page that accompanies every written assignment must be single spaced.
