Citation Guide

Electronic Sources (Web Publications) Citations

Electronic source citations are similar to citations of published works except for two issues: you need to include the URL of the source, and a large percentage of online sources may not list an author. 

There are two parts to citations for all styles: the short-form in line, which directs readers to a full entry at the end of a chapter or book. An in-line citation differs from a footnote, which is a note placed at the bottom of a page. An in-line citation also called the in-text-citation is placed within a line of text.
