Bibliographies

Every book, article, or academic paper needs a bibliography.

For five years I was the Coordinating Editor of the Online Egyptological Bibliography, running the project on a day-to-day basis, and acting as line manager for its editorial team and in-house programmer. I also took the lead in designing both the look and functionality of the website, and created its automated bibliographic output style.

I am therefore keenly aware that each publisher has a bibliographic stylesheet to which authors must adhere. I am also keenly aware that this is often the last thing that an author wishes to engage with, given that the focus is inevitably on the content of their book or article.

Because bibliographies are so essential to the academic process I offer to create one for you that is both internally consistent, and accurately follows your publisher's chosen style. I can do this in one of two ways:

First, as an expert user of EndNote™ I have created hundreds of .ens files to match the preferred styles of publishing houses and university departments. This option works best if you also use EndNote, for once I send you the .ens file you will be able to use it directly.

Second, I can work through any bibliography that you send, correcting any errors that have crept in. This option is best for those who manually compile their bibliographies, copying the information from a number of sources.

Whichever option you choose, I will work to ensure that the bibliography that accompanies your book or article is accurate and consistent.
