How to Cite a Smartwatch
by Timothy McAdoo
Happy April Fools' Day, everyone!
No, sorry, we haven't developed a format for citing a smartwatch. No matter how many we see on your collective wrists in the coming years, we're unlikely to need a new reference format. (Notice how I hedged on that?)
That's because references should point readers to retrievable sources. See the following posts for more detailed explanations from my colleagues:
- Being (APA) Stylish (a post about what is and is not addressed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association)
But, because you've clicked on a post about smart watches, I think you might be interested in this post on how to cite Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and other social media sites.
