Style Guidelines Studies in the Bible and Antiquity
a. Give the full name of the author (first, middle initial, last).
b. Give the title of each book in full.
c. If a book within a series can be located without the series title, the series title should be omitted.
d. For an article in a journal, the title of the article is given within quotation marks, and the title of the magazine or journal is italicized.
e. If a book or article by Nibley is cited and has already appeared in the Collected Works, then the original citation need not be given.
f. Required publication information for books includes: (place: publisher, date). Do not include such words or abbreviations as Company, Co., Inc., or Press (unless the reference is to a university press, i.e., Cambridge University Press).
g. Page numbers should be given exactly-do not use f. or ff. Omit p. and pp. unless it would be confusing or misleading to do so. The general format for abbreviating inclusive numbers (page numbers and scripture references) is as follows:
for numbers between and including 1 and 99, use no abbreviations: 25-29, 89-92
when first number is 100 (or multiple of 100), use all digits: 100-109, 200-206
when first number is between 101 and 109 (or 201 and 209, etc.), use changed part only (omit unneeded zeros): 101-9, 203-5
when first number is between 110 and 199 (or 210 and 299), etc.), use two digits or more as needed: 111-18, 1536-38
h. Subsequent citations within an article should be given a shortened form consisting of the author's last name, a short title of the book or article, and page, volume, and edition number as necessary to make the reference unambiguous. We have stopped the practice of using Ibid.
i. Where the author has introduced italics within a quotation, "emphasis added" should appear following the page number and a comma. "Emphasis added" need not be appended to quotations from the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, or the Pearl of Great Price, since italics rarely occur in these volumes. Do use "emphasis added" with biblical quotations when appropriate.
