Working paper Open Access
This set of questions was developed with the conceptualized use case of going through each question for an already written draft paper to pay attention to the works cited (and edit appropriately as you determine necessary). The intention is to help you note patterns in terms of publication venues, diversity of sources, where the authors are from geographically, institutionally, intellectual genealogy, categories of race, gender, other intersectional categories.
Note: I would not wish for this set of questions to be translated into a quantitative “rating” that gives a measure of progressive citational practices. Rather, I intend for these questions to help foster a reflective practice of focusing one’s own attention to important aspects that should be considered when writing and citing.
