See syllabus for contact information and office hours.

References Cited

For your GEO 323 research paper, you are required to use the style of the Journal of Climate, published by the American Meteorological Society.

You may find it helpful to review in-text citations and reference lists from recent articles.

Some common elements of a journal citation (books and other formats require some different elements) include:

  • Author name(s)
  • Year of publication 
  • Article title
  • Journal title
  • Volume (& sometimes issue number)
  • Page numbers of the article 

It is helpful to note the citation details as you find sources you plan to use.  This will make creating your reference list much easier.

Additional help on citations styles is available on the Citations 101 guide.

Using Interlibrary Loan

 Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is available to currently registered OSU students, current and emeritus faculty, and staff with a valid ONID account. OSU Libraries pay for the cost of providing academic materials from other libraries. This typically takes 1-2 weekdays, however unique items or for items that must be mailed will take 2-8 weeks.

Scan & Deliver (also part of ILL) allows you to request scans of print materials held in the OSU Libraries.  The library will create scans within the limitations of copyright (complete books, journal issues cannot be scanned).  This typically takes 1-2 weekdays.
