I know it sounds a rhetorical question. But as a TA, I have noticed that students in my institution often have a very difficult time with correct citation style. My class follows APA. Somehow, even with widely available internet sources (and even citation generators) many still do not seem to get it. Sometimes I wonder if a universally accepted, standardized citation style, across disciplines would make more sense.
Perhaps this is more of a rant out of frustration. But I figured I would extend this question to the crowd to see what others think.
I’ve been reading medical and academic journals for about two years now and they are all thoroughly cited. When I right a report for college it must contain a cited works page. Why do the watchtowers and awake as well as meeting workbooks not contain cited works or any form of citation even for the statistics from external sources? It bothers me a lot.
Sorry for the screenshots but the text of my post kept getting deleted. I wrote this as a senior project for my B.S. in Environmental Policy as an undergrad. If you have any questions feel free to ask because the paper is ~30 pages and I just chose a few examples. Citations with clickable links in the comments.
Please spread this as much as possible. I am getting my M.S. in Environmental Policy before going to law school with the mission of ensuring that water is a publicly available and free commodity. I want as many people to know what Nestlé has done as possible. Thanks for the read and stay hydrated my friends.
a part of Schmidhuber's Critique of 2018 Turing Award caught my eye:
>Hinton's 2nd most cited paper [RUM] [R5] is the one on experiments with backpropagation (note that in 2019 his Google Scholar page greatly exaggerated the citation count of [RUM], adding citations for a book by Rumelhart & McClelland [R5]). Backpropagation is a previously invented method [BP1] whose origins Hinton did not cite, not even in later surveys [[R7]](http://people.idsia.ch/~juergen/criti... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've never met a Canadian in my life. Neither has any of my friends or relatives or anyone I know.
A couple of months ago I posted a relatively well-received post providing a brief overview of Palpatine's Contingency. It was suggested I post it on r/MawInstallation as well, but I didn't want to do that until I fleshed it out with Canon citations. I've finally written the first draft. Be forewarned, this is relatively long (and exceeds the 40,000 character limit of a Reddit post...hence the link) but I wanted to make it as complete as possible. It will also be polished and additions will be made as new Canon material is released. Anyhow, have a look... I really hope you enjoy it.
Hello, I wonder that, i think current alpha does not include Citation, it is based on that there is no released screenshot of citation plane. So Beta is very near and due to defination of Beta, being feature complete, I think Citation will pushed after the realese of the simulator. What you guys think of that situtaion?
When reading research literature, I see all these ten page papers with fifty citations. Now, don't get me wrong, establishing a firm grounding for why you're doing what you're doing and comparing it to the state of the art is important, but there's definitely inflation going on.
Like a paper will say "Neural networks do cool shit" and then cite five random instances of neural networks doing cool shit. Then it'll say "One type of neural network is a CNN" and cite not only the origin of CNNs, but five more random variants and uses of CNNs. That's ten citations that haven't actually helped elucidate whatever the hell you're about to talk about.
There are also things like "Research in this field is ongoing" with a gajillion citations, or "This architecture is useful" with a bunch of papers that show it to be useful, that while good to know have been backed up, don't really tell you anything about what's actually going on.
In a paper with fifty citations, maybe three or four actually end... keep reading on reddit ➡
Clarivate, a company running indexing services for scientific papers, recently announced they would not award impact factors to journals in which over 25% of citations reference papers in the same journal.
Impact factor measures the number and frequency of citations of a journal, paper or scientist and is used by universities or other scientific institutions in evaluating job applicants, as a sort of scientific elo. Some journals and people try to game this system by encouraging a lot of self-citations. These journals being pulled from the ranking means anyone who published in them in the affected years basically did so without contributing anything to the future of their career.
However, this recent wave of "suppressions" also included a journal about animal taxonomy and one about microbiological systematics. This is being met with criticism, as the first... keep reading on reddit ➡
Class Week 1: You MUST cite your work. We use format X in this faculty. Here are the many supports available.
Class Week 2: If you don't cite, your work will remain ungraded, which means a zero. Look, here is the guide for the citation format, and the uni offers free one-on-one tutoring to learn citations.
Class Week 3: Your first major assignment is due next week. Be sure to cite. If you don't cite, you will get a zero. There will be no further reminders.
Class Week 4: [Assignments handed in, graded]
Class Week 5: "Prof! Why did I get a zero??"
EDIT: typo 0_o
Hey everyone, not entirely sure this kinda thing is allowed in the group but I was wondering if you guys wouldn't mind helping me fill out my list of citable examples to support my belief in democratic/market socialism. Usually, I'll cite worker's cooperatives like Means Media and the Mondragon Group. I also cite the U.K.'s NHS, community land trusts and the Vienna public housing model. In the past I've also cited Titoist Yugoslavia though obviously I reject the dictatorial tendencies of that particular example. Does anyone have any other citations I can borrow? They can be either scholarly articles or real world examples like Mondragon. Thanks.
Psst, come here...so tell me how you do it? How do you create, track, and organize all those genealogy citations for your sources?
I graduated May 2019 and got 2 citations (one in sep 2019 and one in feb 2020) that I don't even remember. $50 each for a total of $100. I'm not going to pay them but can anything even happen now that I'm already graduated?

Title: "Does Tweeting Improve Citations? One-Year Results from the TSSMN Prospective Randomized Trial"
> The Thoracic Surgery Social Media Network (TSSMN) is a collaborative effort of leading journals in cardiothoracic surgery to highlight publications via social media. This study aims to evaluate the 1-year results of a prospective randomized social media trial to determine the effect of tweeting on subsequent citations and non-traditional bibliometrics.
> A total of 112 representative original articles were randomized 1:1 to be tweeted via TSSMN or a control (non-tweeted) group. Measured endpoints included citations at 1-year compared to baseline, as well as article-level metrics (Altmetric score) and Twitter analytics. Independent predictors of citations were identified through univariable and multivariable regression analyses.... keep reading on reddit ➡
And I quote:
*There are many posts across Reddit, but I cited it for the acts done against [censored]. They are mainly found on r/wellthatsucks and r/iamatotalpieceofshit (sorry)
Same student also cited Buzzfeed and Wikipedia. I just spent four months explaining how to write a paper and do research.
So I got an environmental citation for a weed being over 8 inches tall on my property. I was confused as my property is fenced in and a concrete lot.
Looking at the actual weed, it's coming from the parking lot behind my house, which is not owned by me. It just happens to tower in front of my property. The property lines corroborate my claims (or else I'm getting free parking from now on).
My question is: is this worth fighting? It's $50 (which will not impact me one way or the other) but this is clearly not my responsibility or wrong doing. Yet it looks like the only way to contest it is to go to the physical building for a hearing.
