CH 123: General Chemistry

This guide is designed to help you complete your chemistry news article assignment.

Citation Basics

There are certain basic things you need to cite almost all sources, using just about any format:

  • The AUTHOR (or creator) of the work.  This may be one person, many people, a group or an organization.
  • The TITLE OF THE WORK itself.  The article title, the book title, the video title, etc.

If your specific source was published as part of a larger work, then you also need the TITLE OF THE LARGER WORK

This could be a newspaper, magazine or journal (if your source is an article), a book (if your source is a chapter or image), etc.
