I've noticed a lot of Hubs do not link to references. Is this against the rules of Hub Pages? I'm used to including references at the end of my articles, but I can leave them out if it's not allowed here.
There's no rule here about them. Free free to use them if you think they are appropriate.
IMHO, unless you're writing a scientific/medical article, I don't think they're exactly necessary. If you're writing a "How To" or other informational piece, resources to give the reader more information are always helpful, but I would hyperlink appropriate words in the text rather than give citations at the end. Just my opinion though...
i think in hubpages we can't give references as it violate its rules and policies
Welcome to HubPages!
You can add any references you choose to add that are relevant to your topic. You are not required to do so, but it does give your reader something else to reference and your reader might find more value in your work more so than without it.
However, if you cover your topic thoroughly then you have no need to reference anything else.
HubPages has no rules regarding references.

Different hubbers do it differently. Some provide hyperlinks, some provide links at the bottom of their hub and some do not source their material, etc.

Hi. I'm new here and writing my first hub. I always cite sources in stories when I don't have first-hand knowlege of a fact, and I wonder what the rules are here for source citations. Are we expected to use them? Should sources be noted in text or at the end of a story? Not clear on how it's...
