There is an interesting discussion happening on on the "$3,000.00 Question revisited thread" about citations. Thought I'd start a new thread since that has gotten a little off topic and I feel somewhat responsible with my suggestion that format software such as Style Ease or Eazy Paper is a good thing. http://www.styleease.com/ http://www.eazypaper.com/ (for the record, I have had much better success with Style Ease than Eazy Paper and I have used both in Turabian and MLA. I've never come across one for Harvard Reference system, but that system, as with MLA, is MUCH more straightforward than Turabian. Style Ease has a "Seminary Style" also but I am not sure what seminary it was written for, it is basically Turabian with a modified cover sheet...) Question: Is it appropriate to use format software like Style Ease? If so, is is more appropriate at the undergraduate or graduate level? Should one learn to do it manually first? (I would suggest yes, but what do you think) Does the use of this software have a bearing on conservative scholarship quality or integrity? Should I throw out the software and my computer and get a really old fashioned to typewriter to ensure I spend at least 60+ hours on each research paper in formatting alone? (sarcasm noted...) Thoughts?
