Methods to the Madness: 4. Publication Information Section in a Reference Entry

Last updated 4/27/2016

 

Visual: Walden logo at bottom of screen along with notepad and pencil background.

Audio: Guitar music.

 

Visual: “Walden University Writing Center. Your writing, grammar, and APA experts,” appears in the center of the screen. Background changes to another notebook on a table. “Methods to the APA Madness. Why Does Walden Use APA Style?” text appears in center of screen.

Slide changes to slide titled “Publication Information” at top. Slide contains text box that reads:

Oyo, B., & Kalema, B. M. (2014). Massive open online courses for Africa by Africa. International Review of Research in Open & Distance Learning, 15(6), 1–13. Retrieved from http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl

Below this text box is another text box that reads, “Part that will change the most depending on type of source.” Below both is a bulleted list that reads, “Depends on how the source was published. Depends on how you accessed the source. Directs reader to how to find the source.”

Audio: The next part is the publication information.

 

Visual: Green arrow points to “International Review of Research in Open & Distance Learning” text.

Audio: This is the information that will change the most depending on the source. The things that you need to keep in mind, is that it will depend on how you accessed the source, and this information directs the reader to how to find the source. So, I can tell this reference entry is for a journal article because the publication information it provides me is from a journal.
