Creating new citation styles
Creating New Citation Styles

  • If you cannot find an example of the type of source material you want to cite, and if you

    have exhausted other resources then just cite all of the details that would help a reader find the source easily. Think about the four “W”s:

  • WHO created the work,

  • WHAT is the title and type of information,

  • WHERE can one find it, and

  • WHEN was it published
