How should sources be cited?

Mwar Mwar
Essentially, if someone is stating a statistic or fact that has a source, how should they cite it in their article?

Also, can someone include links in their articles? For example, let's say someone is discussing a commercial (sex related, of course), is it okay to link a video to it? If we are, how?

Just want to know the logistics!

Thanks!

Hi Mwar!

The submission wizard makes citing sources pretty easy. There are a couple ways you can do it.

The first is a bibliography tab in the submission wizard that allows you to enter pertinent information such as the author's name, the url if the source is online and the publisher and publication date. Another way would be to link to the source within the text the same way you format forum threads here.

As for videos, you can actually embed those within the text, if you'd like, provided they're not advertisements for competitors. Most video sites have embed codes listed so you can share videos you find there. You can copy that code and paste it into the wizard and it should work with most codes. If you find one that doesn't work with our site, there's also an "Add video" link above each text box for the body of the article, and you can add videos that way.

Let me know if you have anymore questions. Thanks!
