The guide given below provides the most commonly used source publications. Consult
Turabians Manual for Writers for examples of the proper way to cite references not
given in this guide.
1) You must distinguish that there are basically two sets of notation formatting to use in
your paper which have different construction. You will use FOOTNOTES (bottom of the
page) and a BIBLIOGRAPHY which is posted at the end of your paper. For EVERY
source you use, there will be two different citations to construct one in the
FOOTNOTE, and one for the BIBLIOGRAPHY.
2) Construct your FOOTNOTES and BIBLIOGRAPHY exactly to the guidelines of this
Turabian guide, a form of citation which is particularly suitable to research papers written
in the field of Anthropology and Religion.
