Introduction

        
The CSE gives no official specific information regarding the bibliographic citation of blogs. Most entities treat them as an electronic publication/web site hybrid. As such, citations from a blog should include some or all of the following elements:

 

  1. Author (last name first/middle initials). Separate additional authors with comma.

  2. Title of blog entry, capitalizing only the first word of the title, subtitle and any proper nouns.

  3. Title of blog, followed by [Internet].

  4. Place of publication (City (State initials)) and publisher name/organization, followed by a colon.

  5. Name of publisher (if corporation/organization).

  6. Date blog entry was published (Year abbreviated month day).

  7. citation date, in brackets [cited year abbreviated month day]

  8. Available from: URL (if online)


Basic Layout
