Researchers using information gathered on the Internet must cite their sources just as they would cite conventional sources in traditional research. Citation standards have been developed for electronic information based on the American Psychological Association, Modern Language Association, the Chicago Manual of Style conventions, and more. For a more comprehensive overview of documenting electronic sources, see Purdue University, Owl Online Writing Lab, Documenting Sources.
