American Anthropological Association Style Manual

American Anthropological Association uses The Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. This guide is an outline of style rules basic to AAA style. Where no rule is present on this list, follow Chicago. For spelling, follow Webster’s first spelling if there is a choice and use American not British spellings. This guide does not apply to newsletters, which frequently deviate from these guidelines in the interest of space and tend to follow many Associated Press style rules.
