Citing MOOS Materials

Guy Burgess and Heidi Burgess



Many users have asked us about the proper procedure for citing Beyond Intractability resources. The answer depends on what style guide you are using. Common style gudies are MLA (Modern Language Association), APA (American Psychological Assocation), and Chicago.

Those three styles are illustrated below:


MLA: 

General format/sequence:

RESOURCE-AUTHOR-LAST-NAME, RESOURCE-AUTHOR-FIRST-NAME. "RESOURCE-TITLE." Moving Beyond Intractability Massive Open Online Seminar. Boulder, Colorado, USA. DATE.
<RESOURCE-URL>.

For example:

Burgess, Guy and Burgess, Heidi. "The Intractable Conflict Challenge." Moving Beyond Intractability Massive Open Online Seminar. Boulder, Colorado, USA.  Jan. 15, 2016.
<http://www.beyondintractability.org/moos/challenge>.

Note: MLA no longer requires the use of URLS in citations because URLS often change, which is true. However, Beyond Intractability urls have stayed the same for ten years, and we fully intend to maintain them for much more than that.  The same is true for the MOOS urls. So we believe their inclusion is useful. If included, they should go in brackets at the end of the citation, as above.

APA

 

General format/sequence:

 

Author. (Date published if available; n.d.--no date-- if not). Title of article. Title of web site .

Retrieved date. From URL.

For example:
Burgess, Guy and Burgess, Heidi.  (15 Jan. 2016 ). "The Intractable Conflict Challenge." Moving Beyond Intractability Massive Open Online Seminar. Retrieved Feb. 1, 2016 from <http://www.beyondintractability.org/moos/challenge>.


CHICAGO

General format:
Author, Webpage title. date/year published, URL (date accessed )


For example:

Burgess, Guy and Burgess, Heidi. "The Intractable Conflict Challenge." Jan. 2016. <http://www.beyondintractability.org/moos/challenge> (Accessed Feburary 1, 2016)
