The following web link is to a document has been provided to assist students studying Sociology in properly citing and referencing their papers and essays. The information in this document is taken from American Sociological Association Style Guide (3rd ed.), 2007. We highly encourage students who plan to major in Sociology or pursue their masters in Sociology to purchase the complete Style Guide which features sections on: Editorial Styles, Mechanics of Style, Guidelines for Organizing and Presenting Content, and more detailed information on referencing your scholarly sources. The complete ASA Style Guide can be found at http://www.asanet.org/journals/guides.cfm.
I am in the process of securing a couple of copies to be maintained at the Reserved Materials Desk in the Huie Library. Any papers prepared for your classes (unless directed otherwise) will need to conform to the ASA Style Guide 3.
