The method you use is up to you, but one of the options is to use footnotes with your sources.
Can you please show some example hubs so that I can better understand this?
Don't know if this is the kind of thing you have in mind, but you can use a Link List quite handily for general citations, e.g. a list of references and/or endnotes.
Example: my hub on the Osprey (you can find it via my profile page) where I've used the Link List module at the bottom to refer readers to the key sources used in researching the content: "Learn More About the Osprey - Resources / References" it's called.
Alternatively, for individual footnotes, you could simply use the Text modules to give your (numbered) references, placed directly below the content to which it refers.
And if you want to cite the source of images, it's easiest to use the "Name of Source," "Source URL," and "Caption" fields in the Image module itself.
If you can be a bit more specific about what kind of citation you have in mind, and what kind of material you'd like to cite, it might be easier to give you a bit more help.
For hubs related to science and technology?
I've used the links capsule in this hub http://adevwriting.hubpages.com/hub/Ele … using-cars
Is the above what you meant when you said " Don't know if this is the kind of thing you have in mind, but you can use a Link List quite handily for general citations, e.g. a list of references and/or endnotes."
Yeah, that's the kind of Link List usage I meant. That looks like it works well in your Electric Vehicle hub.
Just one tiny note, though, if you don't mind - I'd be inclined to say "References" rather than "Citation" in the module title, as the term "citation" is more likely to refer to a specific item (e.g. a note about the source of a quotation) rather than to a source material that was consulted in a more general way.
But to your original point, yes, that use of the Link List seems a useful/appropriate way to acknowledge the resources you consulted for your research and, most importantly, it's helpful to the reader who wants to dive in to more detail.
Here are some Hubs and other site content related to citation.
HubPages is not Wikipedia, and Hubs are not academic papers. You do not need to add formal citations at all. What you must do is acknowledge where you got the material from, in the way that will make most sense to your reader.
In most cases, the simplest way to do it is to provide a link to the original document, if it's online. That's the type of citation which will most benefit the originating site, too.

How and where do you normally include references and citations when you publish your articles?Do you list them at the bottom of your article? Within each text capsule?

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 appear. Right now I highlight text and use links or place a links capsule with...

Are in-text citations and references needed (or at least highly encouraged) for informative hubs?I was wondering whether it is highly encouraged that hubbers put in specific references within the texts as how they are written in scientific papers or simply put references at the end. Maybe it ...
