When you are making your term paper you need to keep in mind some points related to citation and these are essential and very important for your term paper article. In this post I have decided to give some tips about various forms of citations and I am sure students will get benefit from that.
Books and other printed works

A reference to a book or another printed work, such as a report, should include the following information, in this order:

Author(s), editor(s) or corporate author
Year of publication of book (in round brackets)
The title and any subtitle, which should be in italics
Series title and number (if they appear)
The edition if it is not the first
Place of publication
Publisher

For example:
Lugar, G.F. (2001) Artificial intelligence: structures and strategies for complex problem solving. 4th ed. Boston: Addison Wesley.

Electronic Books

A reference to an electronic book, should include the following information, in this order:

A reference to a journal article should include the following information, in this order:

• The author(s) of the article

• The month and year of publication (in round brackets)

• The title of the article (in quotation marks)

• If you are referencing an editorial put [editorial]

• The title of the journal, which must be in italics

• The volume and part number

• The first and last page numbers of the article

For example:

Electronic journal articles (accessed online)

A reference to an e-journal, including those that have come from an e-journal collection, such as Business Source Premier, Emerald Fulltext, Science Direct, should include the following information in this order:

• The author(s) of the article

• Date of publication (in round brackets)

• The title of the article (in quotation marks)

• The title of the journal, which must be in italics

• Volume number and issue numbers

• Name of e-journal collection if applicable

• [Online]

• State where the article is available online from:

• Quote the DOI number (the Digital Object Identifier). The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a system for identifying content objects in the digital environment. DOIs are names assigned to any entity for use on digital networks. Information about a digital object may change over time, including where to find it, but its DOI will not change.

• If a DOI is not available, quote the URL of the home page of the e-journal or e-journal collection

• See the examples below for information about using DOI numbers in your reference.

• Accessed: followed by the date accessed (round brackets)
