Subject: citations of e-journal articles

Surfed into your cite and noticed the info you posted to "Skip" about
how to cite CMC in a bibliogrpahy. Good suggestions. In case you're
interested, this is how the American Psychological Association (APA)
suggests citation.

For on-line journals with general access (not subscriber-based):

Last name, Initials. (Year, Month). Article title [length of article
   in paragraphs]. Journal Title [the words "on-line serial"], volume#
   (issue#). Available: pathname.

The example for the CMC article you cited would then be:

Bilodeau, A. (1994, July) Into the net: A reporter's transformation
   [26 paragraphs]. Computer-Mediated Communication Magazine [on-line
   serial], 1(3). Available

As far as I know, there is no on-line source for APA. I got this
information from the newest (1994, fresh off the press) edition
of their publication manual. 

Just for reference, APA says right in their text that their forms for
E-mail citations are based on the following publication:

Li, X., & Crane, N. B. (1993). Electronic style: A guide to citing
   electronic information. Westport, CT: Meckler.


CMC Magazine invites comment and feedback in the form of letters to the editor on all topics having to do with the magazine, as well as letters addressing general comments or concerns about CMC experiences, processes, or research.
