Reference numbers will be in Arabic numerals in superscript format.
|e.g.||Mark Greenslade coined the word ‘procrastilaxing’ in 2011.1|
The citation mark should be located after punctuation that ends a sentence but before other punctuation.
|e.g.||Young readers need correct grammar and punctuation just as much as adults do.2,3|
|e.g.||Rather it is important, ‘the choice now lay between ghost-writing and having it edited’4, because everybody believed that the existing text was not good enough for publishing.|
If there are a number of reference citations that refer to particular parts of a sentence, the citation should be placed next to the word to which it refers.
|e.g.||Mime,5, Itron6 and Catheson7 maintain that the book design was excellent.|
The same citation number can be used for subsequent citations of the same reference and page number. There is no need to use ibid. or op. cit., etc. and a new reference number. This procedure generates an unnecessarily long reference list.
If the same reference is cited but with a different page number or additional information, then a new citation number will need to be generated. For example:
|4.||Hopper, T., The Difference Between Copyediting and Structural Editing, 2nd edition, Book Future Publishing Co., Logan, p. 3, 1995.|
|8.||Hopper, ref. 4, p. 65, Does Hopper repeat the same wrong claims in his latest edition (1998) of this book? And if not, does he acknowledge his errors publicly?|
For book reviews, simply write the page number after the quotation, e.g. (p. 35), if it is from the book being reviewed.
