That is a very enlightening answer, thanks very much. I will keep this question opened for the moment to get more ideas from others. If you have more ideas, don't hesitate to share them, I will read them all :-)

comment Where could I find a detailed reference on all composition rules?
@jrista, I don't know actually, I just never saw an academic paper citing a web page. What if the site or ebook get removed? In my humble opinion, I think it is not a good idea to cite sites or ebooks yet, because the idea of citing is that we build our works on each other, so I would rather build my work on something well established rather than just a web page or unpublished ebook. Also, what if the contents are incorrect? With a published book, I am safe because the book author will be blamed, but with an ebook or a site, I will be blamed for depending on it. What do you think?

@Finch, you made a good point, but it doesn't apply well to me. My work is not related to the art side of photographic rules, so I don't need to buy ten books and study them well. Rather, I just want to get some book to cite in my paper for people who are interested in the rules themselves. This is why I don't want to pay for books before being sure they will be useful to me, and most of the books suggested so far don't even have TOC on Amazon! Anyway, I will have to buy some of them, I have no other choice.

This one seems to be good, but there is still no table of contents :( Do you have the table of contents to share? And are you sure it contains the basic composition rules with details?!

The problem with this book is that I don't find it on Amazon or Google Scholar, so I can't cite it in my paper.

I checked the book on Aamzon, but there is no table of contents :(

@mattdm, why don't you recommend this book? For me, the comment I quoted above made me feel it is not about the basics. Do you have another reason why not to recommend it?
