Hi all,

I'm writing a thesis and would appreciate guidance concerning the citation of info derived from searches in Logos word studies, tools, or guides that are not in my current library, please. 

Warm regards,

Estelle

Welcome! Smile 

If you are using a resource found in a guide, you should cite the resource(s) pulled from running the guide. For other tools, you should seek the assistance of your advisor for how they would like you to cite the source using the style guide in your program.

For things like searches I have always used a footnote explaining that I conducted a Logos Search and describing the search criteria (and Logos version) used. As an example, I once wrote a paper on Servanthood as a theological theme and did a search for "Servant of God/the Lord"  in the Old Testament. When I wrote the paper I forgot to include "my servant", which the marker fortunately didn't notice, but I immediately did when looking back a few years later and rereading the footnote.  Where appropriate I then put the full results of the search in an Appendix. For things like datasets in interactives it becomes a bit more complex and you probably need to check the "About..." for the dataset. This normally tells you what book the data used is drawn from, which you can also explain in a footnote. 

But as JT says, you would probably be best advised to ask at your institution.

Hi JT and Greg, Heartfelt thanks to you both for your insights. I received the following advice that might be helpful to you as well: "The discourse tags derived from the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Datasets (4 vols), edited by Steven Runge and Lydia Husser (Lexham Press, 2008–16). ... Cite them as Runge and Husser (2008–16), and build a paragraph-length explanation of what they are and how you use them ..." Warm regards, Estelle
