Special Instructions
Major papers and thesis must be written according to the rules that govern scientific papers. There are many books on the market that may provide useful guidance to that effect (see, for example, Turabian, K. L., A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Thesis and Dissertations, Chicago. The University of Chicago Press, 1973). Students should, however, be aware that there is no unique set of rules; these rules tend to vary from one discipline to another, and (to a lesser extent) even within the same discipline. As such, there is some flexibility in the way to provide quotations, footnotes, references, etc. Having said this, the student must consistently follow one approach (one set of rules) throughout the entire paper. The simplest way to ensure consistency is to follow the style (rules) of one well-respected economic journal (such as the Canadian Jour nal of Economics or American Economic Review).
The following presents the rules/style favoured by the Canadian Journal of Economics.
1) References
A list of references is given at the end of the paper in alphabetical order of authors. Only include works mentioned in the major paper. Here are three examples of various types of references that follow the Canadian Journal of Economics style:
Card, David (1995) ‘Earnings, schooling and ability revisited.’ In Research in Labor Economics, ed. Solomon W. Polachek. Vol. 14. Greenwich, CT: JAI Press
Cunha, Flavio, and James J. Heckman (2008) ‘Formulating, identifying and estimating the technology of cognitive and noncognitive skill formation.’ Journal of Human Resources 43, 738–82
Lee, David S. (2002) ‘Trimming for bounds on treatment effects with missing outcomes.’ NBER Technical Working Paper No. 277
Note that titles of books or journals are in italics. Titles of articles, chapters of books, working papers or other documents are in quotation marks.
In-text citations (following the Canadian Journal of Economics style) are as follows:
As suggested by Card (1995) the effect of…
This assumption was made by several authors (Bhagwati, 1968; Boulet, 1975).
Note that it is not necessary to use footnotes just to refer to an author’s work and that complete references are indicated only once, at the end of the paper.
2) Footnotes
Footnotes should be used for substantive comments which are not necessary to the line of argument, but which nevertheless provide useful information. Footnotes are numbered sequentially from the beginning to the end of the paper. They may be put at the bottom of each page or (perhaps more conveniently) all together at the end of the paper. The Canadian Journal of Economics style has th e footnotes at the bottom of the page.
3) Tables and diagrams
Tables and diagrams should only be included if they are discussed in the major paper. They must be numbered and referred to in the text by their number. The exact presentation will depend on the journal style chosen. For the Canadian Journal of Economics style it would take the form “Table 1 presents descriptive statistics…”
If a table presents the results of a student’s own econometric work (which also include tables of descriptive statistics), it is not necessary to indicate a source. However, the data and methods must be described clearly in the text. Please refer to an economic journal as to how to present a table of results. If statistical information was obtained from a secondary source, both the primary and secondary sources must be given at the bottom of the table. A table or a diagram should not usually appear in the paper as a photocopy taken from an articl e or a book.
4) Quotations
Direct quotations from an author must be indicated clearly. Short quotations are given between quotation marks. Longer quotations are in a separate single-spaced paragraph with the, left margin indented to the text. Sources can be indicated using the method described above to provide reference. The page of the quotation must also be given. For example, (Oates, 1972, page 40). In addition, any idea or argument which is borrowed from another author must be accompanied by the appropriate reference. Paraphrasing from another author (repeating someone’s argument using slightly different words) without citing her/him is plagiarism and is not acceptable.
5) Language Quality The student must ensure that the memory is written in an acceptable French or English. It is not the role of the supervisor to correct grammar and spelling. It is recommended that students, who have writing difficulties, have their texts revised by someone else before submitting. Resources are also available at the University (for example, the Mentoring Centre, and the Academic Writing Help Centre).
