How do I cite my sources for hubs I research?
I would love to write some hubs that would require me to do a little bit of research. How do I go about citing my sources? In college I always used MLA style in-text citations and a works cited page. That doesn't seem like it would work for hub pages though.
Also, is there anything different about writing a researched hub (for profit) and a research paper (not for profit)? Can you still quote and paraphrase your appropriately cited sources?
Good question. I had wondered about that, too. I'll wait with you for the answer!
I imagine working links to your sources into the article you're writing would be all you'd need, really. Though, I'm hardly any sort of authority on this sort of thing, either.
May I recommend Turabian? Your toolbar allows you to put superscript numbers, then you can create a textbox at the very bottom where you cite the source next to the relevant number.
I suspect that a Works Consulted would be sufficient, but if you're actually pulling quotes, then Turabian would be the best way to go.
I have wondered the same. I am used to more formal writing with citations and editors to review all my work. Thanks for raising this question. What I have seen and done is just using hyperlinks to directly cite the source within the text of the article, but I really wish I had editorial assistance with this! Never loved editors (they can be a pain in the neck sometimes), but honestly, now I miss them!

About a week ago I posted about a bug in the new site layouts where the SOURCE link was not showing up under the images. This means any images requiring attribution are being used inappropriately and possibly illegally...

Can you cite Wikipedia in a college paper?My professor told us to cite trusted sources only. Do you think it is a bad idea to cite Wikipedia in a college paper?

Is there a way to add a capsule to cite sources? Would be nice if it had the option of filling out fields to properly cite various sources, such as websites and books.

I have just joined HubPages and have not yet created a hub but I was wondering how you cite a source.

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...
