Citing blog postings.

Yesterday I tried to install a plugin that would allow the creation of citation notes for each post that I’d created. I’ve now removed it for a couple of reasons:

  • In most academic writing, the citations at the end of the piece are for items that are included, not about the item itself.
  • If people are going to take my information, if they’re not interested in quoting properly, my giving them the information to do it, isn’t going to make the slightest bit of difference
  • I couldn’t get the formatting to look right in Firefox, no matter what I tried!

I may, however, have a look at including the unAPI that nogskat suggested yesterday, for Zotero users.
