Parenthetical Citations vs Works Cited

Parenthetical Citations vs Works Cited | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it


Whenever you do research, it is necessary to give credit to the sources you use. 


When completing written assignments that involve research, the standard way of giving this credit is through a Works Cited page at the end of your paper and Parenthetical Citations throughout your paper.  


While a bibliography tells the reader the sources you used, a Works Cited page and Parenthetical Citations are MUCH more specific. 


They allow the reader to know on which page of which source you found a specific piece of information.  


If you do not include these citations, or you do so incorrectly, you are plagiarizing.  


In addition, citations used properly can strengthen your writing because they prove that you have conducted research. 


If your paper has few citations, that means that your paper mostly contains information that is common knowledge- where’s the research in that?



>> When Will I Need a Parenthetical Citation?


>> What is the Relationship Between My Works Cited Page and My Parenthetical Citations?


>> How do I Make a Citation?

.

.

But What If…

My source has two or more authors?...


Has three authors?...


Has more than three authors?There is no author?...


There is no page number?...


I’m using 2 sources by the same author?...

 

I found my information in more than one source?...


I decide to include the name of the author in my own writing?...


I include something that was already a quote in my source?...


I need to change the quote a little to make it flow with my writing?...


I want to use a long quote?...



> A couple of other tips:

  • If you’re ever in doubt, include a parenthetical citation just in case.  If you use one when it’s not necessary, at most you’ll lose a couple of points.  But if you don’t use one and it IS necessary, you could be accused of plagiarism. 
  • When writing a paper that used research, it is a good guideline to have at least 2 citations in each body paragraph.  That means you need to include 2 pieces of information that require a citation.
  • Be careful not to overuse citations.  You need to weave your research with your own ideas and your own writing.  If every sentence has a citation, then very little of your paper is actually yours. 
  • It is good to have citations from different sources in each body paragraph.  That ensures that you are not simply copying or summarizing someone else’s ideas.  The goal of research is to be able to synthesize information found from several sources in order to support your own ideas.

The Link Graph Conundrum: Why Citations Remain Critical to SEO Survival

The Link Graph Conundrum: Why Citations Remain Critical to SEO Survival | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it


It's a popularly held belief that the link graph is broken. This post will explore the roots of the problem, and why it is such a tough problem for Google and Bing to resolve.


These activities will all give you alternative ways to build your reputation, visibility, and traffic.


They also give you the best chance that your site will be sending out the types of signals that search engines want to discover and value anyway.


The citation (link) graph of the web is an important resource that has largely gone unused in existing web search engines. We have created maps containing as many as 518 million of these hyperlinks, a significant sample of the total.


These maps allow rapid calculation of a web page's "PageRank", an objective measure of its citation importance that corresponds well with people's subjective idea of importance.


Because of this correspondence, PageRank is an excellent way to prioritize the results of web keyword searches.


The concept of a "citation" (bolding above was mine, for emphasis) is a critical one. To understand why, let's step away from the web and consider the example of an academic research paper, which might include citations in them that look like this:..."

.

.

.

Using a technique like the PageRank algorithm, you could build a citation graph where each of these "votes" were not counted equally (e.g., if a paper has a lot of citations, the votes it gives would count for more if they did not).


And, just like the PageRank algorithm, you could apply the algorithm recursively to identify the most important papers. The reasons this works well in the academic citation environment are:

1- Small Scale...

2- No Incentive to Spam...

3- Small Communities...



Citations and the Web

In fact, the concept of link building itself has been replaced with content marketing, which the overwhelming majority of people position as being about building reputation and visibility.


This has happened because Google has gotten good at detecting enough of the spammers out there that the risks of getting caught are quite high. No business with investors or employees can afford to invest in spammy techniques because the downside risks aren't acceptable.


On the other hand, if you spend enough time studying search results, you can easily find many examples sites that use really bad link building practices ranking high in the search results for some terms.


If you're playing by the rules and one of these people in outranking you, it can be infuriating.



Sources of the Problem

1- Commercial Environment with High Stakes...

2- Huge Scale...

3- No Cohesive Community...

4- User-Generated Content (UGC)...

5- Advertising...

6- Practical Anonymity...

7- Complete Lack of Structure...



Why Haven't Google and Bing Fixed This?

The reason why they haven't fixed it is because they haven't figured out how to yet. Social media signals aren't the answer either. Nor is measuring user interaction with the SERPs, or on the pages of your site.


These things might help, but search engines would have already started weighting them quite a bit more than they have if they were the answer.



What Does This Means To You?

Ultimately, you want to build your own loyal audience. Here are a few ideas for doing that:

1- Organic social media...

2- Earned Media (Guest Posting)...

3- Speaking at Conferences...

4- Writing Books or eBooks...

5- Develop Relationships with Influential Media and Bloggers...



These activities will all give you alternative ways to build your reputation, visibility, and traffic.


They also give you the best chance that your site will be sending out the types of signals that search engines want to discover and value anyway.

Characterizing and Modeling Citation Dynamics

Characterizing and Modeling Citation Dynamics | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it


Citation distributions are crucial for the analysis and modeling of the activity of scientists.


The authors investigated bibliometric data of papers published in journals of the American Physical Society, searching for the type of function which best describes the observed citation distributions.


They used the goodness of fit with Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics for three classes of functions: log-normal, simple power law and shifted power law.


The shifted power law turns out to be the most reliable hypothesis for all citation networks derived, which correspond to different time spans.


The authors find that citation dynamics is characterized by bursts, usually occurring within a few years since publication of a paper, and the burst size spans several orders of magnitude.


They also investigated the microscopic mechanisms for the evolution of citation networks, by proposing a linear preferential attachment with time dependent initial attractiveness.


The model successfully reproduces the empirical citation distributions and accounts for the presence of citation bursts as well.

A long reference list at the end of a research paper may be the key to ensuring that it is well cited, according to an analysis of 100 years' worth of papers published in the journal Science.

 

The research suggests that scientists who reference the work of their peers are more likely to find their own work referenced in turn, and the effect is on the rise, with a single extra reference in an article now producing, on average, a whole additional citation for the referencing paper...

If you have made a point or conducted research in one paper that you would like to build on in a later paper, you must cite yourself, just as you would cite the work of others.

USING SOURCES


The Hamilton College Honor Code states, “It is essential … that every student understand the standards of academic honesty and how to avoid dishonesty by proper acknowledgment of intellectual indebtedness” .


Drawing on the ideas of others as you develop your own is an essential and exciting component of intellectual work. Whenever you use other writers’ ideas, however, you must acknowledge your sources.


Doing so allows you to distinguish between your ideas and those of others; it directs your readers to relevant sources; and it allows you to give credit where credit is due.


This handout answers questions students often have concerning correct and effective use of sources.



Provide citations whenever you use

  • direct quotations.
  • paraphrases and summaries.
  • borrowed ideas.
  • facts that are not common knowledge.

Case Citation in the UK, EU and more...

Case Citation in the UK, EU and more... | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it


If you are looking for a reported case you will usually have a full case citation.Here is a breakdown of a citation and much more...


What is Case Citation?

Case citation is a system used in many countries to identify past court case decisions, either in series of books called reporters or law reports, or in a "neutral" style that identifies a decision regardless of where it is reported.


Case citations are formatted differently in different jurisdictions, but generally contain the same key information.


A legal citation is a "...reference to a legal precedent or authority, such as a case, statute, or treatise, that either substantiates or contradicts a given position."


Where cases are published in paper format, the citation usually contains the following information:

  • Report title
  • Volume number
  • Page number
  • Year of decision

http://bit.ly/1nAKAAZ

http://bit.ly/1hG5Ehr



THE IMPORTANCE OF LEGAL CITATION

Legal research relies very heavily on citation. In the first year of law school, citation focuses primarily on cases, statutes, articles and book citation. Case citation serves two major functions: first, a complete citation allows the reader to find the decision; second, it should convey valuable information about the case, including the year it was handed down, court level, jurisdiction and case history (if included).


Accurate citation provides a road map that directs the reader to where to locate the law.


As with an actual road map, users of citations depend on their accuracy. Inaccurate or incomplete citations will result in people taking a detour from their goal and wasting time in their legal research.

A better way to track citations ☕Open citation data is coming. It’s a matter of ⌚when⌚, not if | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it


'Open citation data is coming. It’s a matter of when, not if ‘In the beginning was the link…’ – Most of us know what a citation is, a relationship between two publications. But what is open citation data?


Unsurprisingly, its citation data that’s open, free to use, re-usable…and useful in ways you probably haven’t thought about yet. Over the years citations have become the key currency of academic reputation,


helping to measure the degree of influence any one scholar’s works have had on the academic community.


At the most basic level, there are two important aspects of citations associated with any one paper; who is cited in it and who it’s cited by.


The first is easy to establish, the information should be there in the document. However a crystal ball is needed to know who is doing the citing....



What can you do with Citation data (now and in the future)?

.

.

Is it really open and is it useful?



As more citations become openly available the citations themselves are becoming the subject of research with investigators examining the inter-relationships between disciplines, generating new knowledge. 


Making the data open and usable means that hitherto unimagined avenues of exploration can and will appear.

What are Annotated Bibliographies, and How to Prepare them? | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it


  • WHAT IS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY? 

An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents.


Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation.


The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.



  • ANNOTATIONS VS. ABSTRACTS

Abstracts are the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes.


Annotations are descriptive and critical; they expose the author's point of view, clarity and appropriateness of expression, and authority.

 


  • THE PROCESS

Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research.


First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items.


Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.


Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style.

Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article.


Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic.

✬✎The Challenge of Citation in Digital Media

✬✎The Challenge of Citation in Digital Media | Yeaaah! Citation Generators and much more :DD | Scoop.it

 

We can pick up a style guide like those published by the MLA, APA or Chicago and expect that it will tell us exactly how to format our text, as well as how to formally credit the sources we are referring to.

 

These formats have become so ubiquitous in academic communication, particularly in the classroom, that they seem like divine Law set in stone, rules that we must follow or face the consequences.

 

How, then, do we handle digital media projects, where standards are not so clearly set, and where standard style guides do not seem to be clearly adaptable to visual or aural media?

 

This set-in-stone quality to citation style in print, writing researchers have found, may have some unintended consequences for students.

 

An ongoing research project led by Rebecca Moore Howard and Sandra Jameson, called the Citation Project, has collected essays from nearly 180 students from 16 institutions, and studied their habits of citation.

 

What the researchers have found in the first stage of their project is that students are generally disengaged with the sources that they cite, and that more often than not, students are engaged in "quotation mining" in order to superficially meet assignment requirements.

.

.

.

Instead of trying to impose a print standard format for citation on a medium for which it might not be appropriate, it is better to work from these wider principles and practices that underlie citation to develop formats that are:

Appropriate to the media in which students are composingAppropriate to the contexts and audiences of the assignmentsAppropriate to the forms of inquiry in which students are engaging

 

 

➤ The Role of Citation in Academic Inquiry

The authors offer a brief analysis of citation practice in twenty-five American sociological journals, in an attempt to explore claims that citation may show gender bias.

 

Their work follows previous surveys of gender and citation and publication in the social sciences which suggest that women perform less well than men in both areas.

 

The findings of this study suggest that there is indeed gender bias in citation in sociology, and the authors offer some hypotheses to explain the phenomenon that might be tested in further research.
