To correctly format a citation in JWM style, you need to know the type of source. But there are certain rules that apply to all JWM citations in your reference list:
(from an article)
Barnes, D. M., and A. U. Mallik. 1997. Habitat factors influencing beaver
dam establishment in a northern Ontario watershed. Journal of Wildlife
(from a book)
Toweill, D.E., J. W. Thomas, and D. P. Metz. 2002. North
American elk: ecology and management. Smithsonian
Institution Press, Washington, D.C., USA.
JWM uses a parenthetical in-text citation containing author(s) last name(s) and publication year.
|If the author(s) is named in the sentence, only include the publication year in the parenthetical citation. Always include the period to end the sentence after the last parentheses.||
