Wikipedia:Questia/Citations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Here are some examples of citations which include original information as well as a link to Questia. There's no mandatory form for citations. You should follow whatever citation style has been chosen for the relevant article, e.g., using citation templates or not. Wikipedia's rules about bare URLs and link rot require editors not to add only an unlabeled link to HighBeam (or any other website). You should provide the normal citation information for the source (i.e., author, title, date, etc.). You may provide a convenience link to Questia (and Questia Research would presumably appreciate it); if you do so, it should be labeled as "subscription required".

Good luck and enjoy. If you have other ways of citing, feel free to add to this list!
