How to Cite Your Internet References

Hi AllYou need to cite all of your internet references when you send in your papers.The way that you must cite your references is for you to put the web addresses in the body of thepaper. For example…According to National Geographic online, aerial drones can cause the heart rates of black bears to soar (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015/08/150825-drones-animals-wildlife-bears-science-technology/). I was amazed that a small drone could cause this reaction in a large black bear.
If you do not cite your references this way, you will lose points.
DO NOT include a separate section or page for your literature cited.
Assignments in this class are designed to have you explore some personal connection you have with life science. In the last part of the class, Dr E talked about what research is and showed an example of his research with elk. For the third writing assignment, please find an example of life science research from your locality. It can be any type of life science subject including humans, natural resources, or whatever else you can come up with. Be creative, it does not have to be about wildlife! For example, I am interested in the air quality in the Uintah Basin. Because of the oil and gas industry here, the air quality can be the worst in the USA at times. I Googled – air quality and Uintah Basin – and came up with about 34,000 web site hits. I went through these until I found a good example of the research being done. If you are not sure about your topic, get in touch with me and I will review your selection. Please DO NOT use my example of air quality in the Uintah Basin.
This essay must be 1 page in length, typed, double-spaced with 1-inch margins. Spelling and grammar will be taken into account for grading. Write your paper in a word processing program and then cut-and-paste the paper into the submission window. The formatting will disappear when you cut and paste into the assignment window, that is OK. If you are unsure of what plagiarism is, you should watch this Plagiarism Refresher.
You must use at least 1 web site on the internet as references for your paper. Use this site to help you support your topic. Please be sure to include your web address citations in the body of your paper where you use the information. YOU MAY NOT USE ANY FORM OF WIKIPEDIA AS REFERENCES IN THIS CLASS! USE OF WIKIPEDIA AS A REFERENCE WILL EARN YOU A GRADE OF ZERO FOR THE ASSIGNMENT!
