How to acknowledge the Fontes database

The records for each Anglo-Saxon text were compiled by the individual contributors named in the general information for that text, using either their own unpublished research or published work by themselves or others, as noted in the bibliographical information provided with the records, or a combination of the two. Scholars wishing to employ material drawn from the Register in their own publications are asked to acknowledge the Fontes database and, where appropriate, the individual contributor and the published work cited in the bibliographies.

If you need to cite an author/editor/compiler or publisher, please use the following information:

Corporate author/editor/compiler: Fontes Anglo-Saxonici Project

Publisher: Fontes Anglo-Saxonici Project, English Faculty, University of Oxford

Please use the following examples as guidelines:
