A question about Economics & Style

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    Hey all,

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to post in, but here goes. I edit economics papers for an economics institute. I don't have a background in economics, and the papers are written by non-native English speakers, so a lot of the time there is confusion as to whether what I'm reading is jargon or just plain wrong.

    1) Most of what I need I can find through searching the internet, but is there some sort of handbook for this, kind of like an AP Stylebook for economists?

    2) Also, is there an economist-specific style, sort of like the Modern Language Association for English majors, in terms of in text citations, footnotes, endnotes, etc etc etc??

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm not new, but I haven't been around in a very long time, nor was I very prolific in the first place. Hello.
