The Chicago Manual of Style Online: Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide
The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date. Choosing between the two often depends on subject matter and the nature of sources cited, as each system is favored by different groups of scholars. The notes and bibliography style is preferred by many in the humanities, including those in literature, history, and the arts. This style presents bibliographic information in notes and, often, a bibliography. It accommodates a variety of sources, including esoteric ones less appropriate to the author-date system. The author-date system has long been used by those in the physical, natural, and social sciences. Aside from the use of notes versus parenthetical references in the text, the two systems share a similar style. Notes and Bibliography: Sample Citations The following examples illustrate citations using the notes and bibliography system. Book One author 1. 2. Pollan, Michael. Two or more authors 1. 2. 1. 2. 1. 2. 1. 2. 1.

How urban planners’ bid to impose order on cities is compromised We like to think we are free agents, entitled to some individual expression in our built environment. But if world history is one long stumble towards emancipation, are planned cities – the imposition of urban order in which a single design process dictates the pattern of our lives – really a good idea? Do we need our cities to be organised along functional lines, so that they better organise us?

Research Designs in Education Bentz and Shapiro (1998) in the chapter five (“The Scholarly Practice – Facing the Loss of Identity through the Onslaught of the Information Age”) suggest scholarly practitioners to accomplish their research project with good groundwork. The researcher’s role involves “using professional practice and knowledge as a resource for the formulation and production of scholarly practice and knowledge as well as for evaluating, testing, applying, extending, or modifying existing knowledge” (p. 66). Because of debates and controversies surrounding the knowledge crisis, researchers must justify their choices. The authors’ pedagogical strategy trains practitioners to actively engage in the critical evaluation of their activities throughout their research project.

Comparison of reference management software The following tables compare reference management software. General[edit] In the "notes" section, there is a difference between: Operating system support[edit] In the case of web applications, this describes the server OS. For centrally hosted websites that are proprietary, this is not applicable. Should I cite the primary sources if I have come across them in a secondary source? When I read through an introduction of an original article by author S(2001), I found it a good source for my literature search. For instance, I came across the following paragraph: “Research has typically addressed modelling and imagery as separate and distinct process. However, several investigators have noted that modeling and imagery are actually quite similar (Druckman & Swets, 1988; Feltz & Landers, 1983; Housner, 1984; Mccullagh & Weiss, 2001; Ryan & Simons, 1983; Vogt, 1995). Both of these processes include the use of cognitive representations.” I would like to use this idea in my manuscript in this way: “Cognitive process of motor imagery is similar to the that of modeling(reference source will be mentioning here in this bracket)” and then I would like to reveal the reference source to support where the idea is from. However, I thought it’s okay to cite the source from the author S(2001) only but I got to know he actually also cited multiple sources from other sources.

Is It Time to Move Past Urban Studies and Toward Urbanization Science? - Eric Jaffe William Solecki compares the current study of cities to natural history in the 19th century. Back then most natural scientists were content to explore and document the extent of biological and behavioral differences in the world. Only recently has science moved from cataloguing life to understanding the genetic code that forms its very basis. It's time for urban studies to evolve the same way, says Solecki, a geographer at Hunter College who's also director of the C.U.N.Y. Institute for Sustainable Cities. What Is MLA Style? All fields of research agree on the need to document scholarly borrowings, but documentation conventions vary because of the different needs of scholarly disciplines. MLA style for documentation is widely used in the humanities, especially in writing on language and literature. Generally simpler and more concise than other styles, MLA style features brief parenthetical citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work. MLA style has been widely adopted by schools, academic departments, and instructors for over half a century. The association's guidelines are also used by over 1,100 scholarly and literary journals, newsletters, and magazines and by many university and commercial presses.
