Some citation forms are still in use whose purpose is to conceal
the source of the reference except to those specially instructed in
deciphering the form used. The Quarterly has always followed
the policy of having citation forms be as clear and unmistakable
as possible-understandable to a high school senior. A citation
should mark a clear trail back to the original source; making a
citation is simply an exercise in intellectual honesty. Simplicity
and utility should be guideposts governing the choice of any par-
ticular citation form.
The following citation forms represent standardizations that
have been arrived at in Quarterly procedure over the years. The
use of these forms by prospective contributors to the Quarterly
will materially aid the work of the editorial staff.
