EDIT: Title should read, "New Hubber, looking for advice regarding citations."
What is the best way to cite sources on a Hubpage?
I write about political articles with relevant information taken from academic books. Citing sources in these instances is essential, at the minute I've taken to using the numbered bullet point tool. But it simply looks unprofessional.
My UN Vetoing article has an example at the bottom of how I have attempted it. Are there any programs or buttons I am missing?
Do people cite sources often here?
Thanks in advance for any replies,
Sometimes, depends on the writer and the hub. If you search for Quilligrapher, I think, from memory, Quilligrapher cites sources within his hubs, so you may be given examples. Also, check out HTodd, I'm sure I saw a hub a while back about referencing on the web.
theseattlegirl also does citations. She does them in a really clean, attractive way. You can find an example of her citations on this hub, under "references":

I would love to see a citation feature that would build a source list for us much like you see on wikipedia. I want to be able to drop a source in as I write and have a bibliography and footnote notation...

I'm enjoying everything about the site and beginning my first hub. But one question about hub postings. Is one supposed to cite their paraphrased information as you would in a research paper? provide a link? or not...
