I’m noting some variations in the use of URLs (most especially “Retrieved From”) and online types between various guides to the APA. Note: I’m not a CSL expert.
- I’m wondering if there’s much of a difference between the actual APA and OWL’s version?
- Even OWL 1 says blogs are supposed to have “[Web log comment]” after the title (other online guides say “[Web log message]”) but I’m not seeing any such thing in my results. (Using pandoc 184.108.40.206 and pandoc-citeproc 0.7.2).
- Looking at the CSL, I don’t see anything like that. I do see:
<else-if type="post-weblog webpage" match="any"> <text variable="genre" prefix=" [" suffix="]"/> </else-if>
This never gets used for my YAML bibliographic data though. I use genre very rarely, basically to distinguish between types of `report` and `thesis`.
- (I’ve ordered the actual APA 6th and should get it later this week.)
