    Well im in a intro to anthropology class right now and I have to make a website about the Tiwi people, so far I think I have everything under control but I don't understand the AAA style of citing sources.

    Is there anyone here that might be willing to help me set up my citations?

    my second Bachelors was in Arch so I am pretty good at citations
    PM me if you wish.

    did you download the AAA style manual ? http://www.aaanet.org/publications/guidelines.cfm

    AAA (American Anthropological Association) format uses The Chicago Manual of Style and Webster's Tenth New Collegiate Dictionary. Where no rule is present on this list, follow Chicago.

    Therefore, this saved me through 6 years of undergrad and grad school ...

    Thanks guys, hopefully I will finish writing everything tonight so I will have all my sources and then I'll try to format them and I will post them here tomorrow afternoon so you guys can double check them for me :D.

    Thanks!

    Ok here are my citations, are these right? I know some of the formating is lost when I pasted it here but it is close to being right? Also I was told that I needed to use 3 academic journals, would this count as 3 different journals even though 3 of them are by the same author? Sorry about all the questions but im a computer science student and haven't dealt much with this stuff before.

    OK looking at this is doesnt look like AAA to me.
    Looks like Chicago A.

    example of AAA format ref for journal article:

    Fredericksen, Clayton
    2002 Caring for History: Tiwi and Archaeological Narratives of Fort Dundas/Punata, Melville Island, Australia. In World Archaelogy Pp. 288-302, Vol. 34.
