I have the link below for referencing material used. It is easy to use but does not answer all my questions.

I've found other websites but they all seem confusing and don't even seem consistent in the order they reference materials.

Here is the Book example from the above site.

Book

Okuda, Michael, and Denise Okuda. Star Trek Chronology: The History

of the Future. New York: Pocket, 1993.


What if the book does not have an author? What about page numbers? All the other references on this website have page numbers except the Book section. I will be using footnotes since the info will be posted on a website, so is this format appropriate?

Here is another reference from another site. It uses paratheses and page numbers for a BOOK. Why the difference and when should i use which?

Joseph W. Krutch, The Life and Times of Henry David Thoreau (New York: Sloane, 1948), 103.

Thanks guys! I'm open to suggestions and even a better format.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

I don't have expertise in this area, but until someone else may reply, here are a few brief comments.

I've found other websites but they all seem confusing and don't even seem consistent in the order they reference materials. That suggests to me that there is not general agreement about one particular method. Im my limited experience, at university level, teachers often give new students some notes on the format they as teachers prefer. Is anything like that available to you? If not, I would choose the one I like best.

Book

Okuda, Michael, and Denise Okuda. Star Trek Chronology: The History of the Future. New York: Pocket, 1993.

What if the book does not have an author? What kind of book has no author, or editor? If there really is no-one, then why not just put the title? What about page numbers? All the other references on this website have page numbers except the Book section. So, why not just do them the way they are done in other sections? I will be using footnotes since the info will be posted on a website, so is this format appropriate? Sure, why not?

Best wishes, Clive
