Computational Mechanics Referencing Guide

This is the Citationsy guide to Computational Mechanics citations, reference lists, in-text citations, and bibliographies.
The complete, comprehensive guide shows you how easy citing any source can be. Referencing books, youtube videos, websites, articles, journals, podcasts, images, videos, or music in Computational Mechanics.

How do you cite a book in the Computational Mechanics referencing style?

Here’s an example book citation in Computational Mechanics using placeholders:
1.
Last Name FN (2000) Title, Edition. Publisher, City
So if we want to cite, for example, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by Joanne K. Rowling we’d do so like this:
1.
Rowling JK (1997) Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, 1st ed. Bloomsbury Publishing Inc, London
And an in-text citation book citation in Computational Mechanics looks like this: [1]

How to reference a journal article in the Computational Mechanics citation style?

Here’s a Computational Mechanics journal citation example using placeholders:
1.
Author1 LastnameAF, Author3 LastnameAF (2000) Title. Container. https://doi.org/DOI
So if we want to reference this scientific article: “Testing consumer preferences for iced-coffee: Does the drinking environment have any influence?” by C. Petit and J.M. Sieffermann in Computational Mechanics:
1.
Petit C, Sieffermann J (2007) Testing consumer preferences for iced-coffee: Does the drinking environment have any influence?. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foodqual.2006.05.008
And an in-text citation would look like this: [1]

Citing a website in Computational Mechanics reference style

Here’s an Computational Mechanics example website reference:
1.
Author1 LastnameAF, Author2 LastnameAF (2000) Title. https://www.example.com. Accessed 18 Jul. 2019
To reference the article located at this link:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/nov/05/uselections20083
on The Guardian website:
1.
Tran M (2008) Barack Obama To Be America’s First Black President. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/nov/05/uselections20083. Accessed 18 Jul. 2019
And an in-text citation would look like this: [1]

Here’s a Computational Mechanics citation YouTube video example:
1.
ChannelName (2000) Title. In: YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXXX. Accessed 18 Jul. 2019
So how to cite a video Computational Mechanics?
1.
Pixar (2015) Pizza Clip — Inside Out. In: YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W6rntBADUQ. Accessed 18 Jul. 2019
And an in-text video citation would look like this: [1]

It is becoming more and more common to reference podcasts in essays or other school work.
Here’s how to reference a podcast it in Computational Mechanics.
1.
Lastname F (2000) Title
Podcast referencing example in Computational Mechanics using “This American Life” episode 640:
1.
This American Life (2018) 640: Five Women
And an in-text citation would look like this: [1]

How to cite a piece of music or a song using Computational Mechanics referencing style?

An example song citation in Computational Mechanics.
1.
Lastname F (2000) Song Title
Let‘s say we want to reference “Here Comes the Sun” off The Beatles “Abbey Road” album in Computational Mechanics:
1.
The Beatles (1969) Here Comes the Sun
And an in-text citation would look like this: [1]
