The School of Theology and Ministry (STM) thanks the Kenrick-Glennon Seminary of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis for granting permission to use the August 2015 revision of its Guidelines for Academic Papers in composing this guide. That document, created for the Seminary by Ms. Mary Ann Aubin, proved an invaluable resource. In fact, some sections of this guide, notably on the pages related to formatting and citations, were adopted directly from Ms. Aubin's work and adapted to meet the needs of STM students.
