Physisists seem to be divided in two layers: those who claim that vertices in Feynman diagrams contribute $ + i e \gamma ^ \mu $ and those who say $ - i e \gamma ^ \mu $. As an example, Griffiths says $ + $ and Schwartz says $ - $. Quick Googling seems to indicate that the two layers are of the same size.

The difference could easily be due to the sign convention for $ e $: do we have $ e > 0 $ or $ e < 0 $? Unfortunately, neither Griffiths nor Schwartz seem to reveal their respective sign conventions for $ e $.

In general, sources tend to be silent about their sign convention of $ e $. An exception is Kleinert who states $ e \lt 0 $ on Page 803 right after Equation (12.10) and says that vertices contribute $ - e \gamma ^ \mu $ on Page 814 Equation (12.96).

My question is: does everyone agree that a vertex contributes $ + i e \gamma ^ \mu $ if $ e > 0 $ and $ - i e \gamma ^ \mu $ if $ e < 0 $?
