Things to remember

Authors' names :

NotesAll authors' names should be Name, Initial, Surname  e.g. Eliza T. Dresang.

Bibliography :  First author should be inverted as Surname, Name Name e.g.  Burnett, Kathleen. Additional authors should be Name, Name, Surname  e.g. Burnett, Kathleen and Eliza T. Dresang.

 

 

Italics : Only the magazine or newspaper title should be in italics.  The article title should not be in italics but should be surrounded by quote marks "....".

 

 

Capitalization : All major words in article titles, subtitles and journal titles should be capitalized.

 

Splitting a URL : If your URL needs to be split do not insert a hyphen. Break the URL before a punctuation mark.  Do not add a full stop at the end of URL as this may appear to be part of the URL and cause retrieval problems.

 

Secondary Sources : You can only reference information that you have actually seen.  If that book or journal article quotes another piece of work which you also want to quote, you need to cite the information as a secondary citation.

For example you read a book by Sandvoss, in which he quotes Jenkins:  "Harry Jenkins states "Recent accounts of fandom in the field of cultural studies have stressed the often negative and hostile representation of fan culture in the mass media."
