CreationWiki talk:Citing sources

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science

Jump to: navigation, search

This is from Wikipedia's citation policy.[1]

Don't cite a source unless you've seen it for yourself. Where you want to cite John Smith, but you've only read Paul Jones who cites Smith, write it like this (this formatting is just an example):
Smith, John. Name of Book I Haven't Seen, Cambridge University Press, 2009, p. 1, cited in Paul Jones (ed.). Name of Encyclopedia I Have Seen. Oxford University Press, 2010, p. 2.

However, if you have read Smith's book yourself, you may cite it directly; there is no need to give credit to any sources, search engines, websites, library catalogs, etc., that led you to that book.

Does the same apply here in CreationWiki?--EvilFlyingMonkey 11:10, 19 October 2011 (PDT)
