Overview

Researchers are increasingly turning to online sources, yet when it comes to citing those sources, style guides fail to cover all the possibilities. The one exception is the Columbia Guide to Online Style. Online media are constantly changing, always producing new methods of communication, and this guide keeps up with them—for example, citation guidance for courseware, blogs, and wikis, and one of the best summations that I have seen of the relationship between plagiarism, copyright, and intellectual property. I wish everyone could read this book.
