Citation Guidelines

When researching our corpora for a future publication, please note the date and version number of the documents or corpora while you are conducting your research. We update our corpora regularly and recommend all citations include the version number and date of the resources used, as described below. (If you conducted research in the past and did not note the version and date of the corpus at that time, then please cite the date you accessed the corpus.)

Examples from the Chicago Manual of Style format appear below; please modify as appropriate for other style formats.

Citing and linking to a query

Links to queries in ANNIS are possible; however, these links remain stable only until the corpus is revised or updated. We recommend citing the project as well as providing information about the query, query link, and date and/or version accessed.  We also recommend using the download option in ANNIS to download query results.  Researchers may then save (or even publish on their own websites under the proper license) the raw data for future reference.
