How to cite

The information found on this website represents years of painstaking scholarly effort. We therefore expect that all use of PESSCA content, including artworks, correspondences, and essays, be properly cited in all scholarly publications. Both printed and online. Crediting PESSCA is not just a matter of intellectual honesty (and its legal ramifications); it is also a means for the project to gain the visibility and credibility it needs in order to continue with its mostly unfunded work, the fruits of which are completely open to the public and absolutely free of charge.

It might be thought that the correspondences found in this website do not need to be cited because they are easily available online. Or because they are mere facts you chanced upon while carrying out online research. Although we appreciate the recognition implicit in regarding our correspondences as factual and easily accesible, we would much rather be explicitly recognized for our efforts at discovery and presentation. Correspondences are scholarly discoveries that must be recognized and cited as such. That is why we provide full citations when we draw correspondences from other scholarly publications.

Continued use of this website implies a commitment to these views.
