The Columbia Guide to Online Style is the go-to resource for instruction on how to cite electronic and electronically accessed sources. It is also a critical style guide for creating documents electronically for print or for submission for print or electronic publication.
This edition explains how to cite new technologies such as Web logs and pod casts, which are becoming the most frequently cited sources in scholarly works. It provides more guidance on translating the elements of Columbia Online Style (COS) citations for use with existing print-based formats (such as MLA, APA, and Chicago), and it features additional guidelines for producing online and print documents based on new standards of mark-up language and publication technologies.
Also in this edition are new bibliographic styles for humanities and scientific projects; examples of footnotes and endnotes for Chicago-style papers; greater detail regarding in-text and parenthetic reference and footnote styles; an added chapter on how to locate and evaluate sources for research in the electronic age; and new examples for citing full-text or full-image articles from online library databases, along with information on how to credit the source of graphics and multimedia files.
Keeping ahead of rapidly evolving technologies, The Columbia Guide to Online Style has become the standard reference for online citations and remains a vital companion for undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and for anyone involved in online research publishing.
