General Guidelines

  1. Explore the content already published on the CADVCEVS Wordpress site to get a feel for the range of content that can be included in the project.
  2. Familiarize yourself with the index. (more on the index in the next section)
  3. The level of detail necessary for each subject will vary. Some subjects, such as Achilles or Crete, will have enough information available for the creation of a full subject guide. Others, such as the Minyans or Ialmenus, will only need a short description.[1] In the case of epithets, they are all grouped onto a single page for people, places, and ships respectively, with two copies of each page: one indexed in English, and the other in Ancient Greek. Each epithet has its own section, and very short snippets of information, links, etc. relevant to the epithet can be included here.
  4. When creating subject guides, you can follow the template used on the CADVCEVS Wordpress site (see the section Example Subject Guides below) or use a format of your own choosing and/or design.
  5. Tips for developing a good subject guide

The Index

An authoritative list of all of the subjects currently scoped for inclusion in CADVCEVS can be found at the index. Any subject that has a page on the wiki is linked to that page. Subjects that are not linked do not have pages yet, and the page will have to be created before information can be added to it and before it can be linked into the index. Some subjects are linked to pages on the CADVCEVS WordPress site; these pages will eventually be migrated over to the wiki.

The index is also the page where you can identify yourself as a contributor for a page by listing the name under which you wish to receive credit and/or your wikispaces/OpenID username in the appropriate section.

Citation Style

The American Psychological Association (APA) citation format is the preferred format when using a style guide to cite sources. Charles Sturt University has an excellent referencing tool located here.
