Many individuals find Wikipedia easy to search and often use it for general background information. In some instances the use of Wikipedia is OK and can help. However, Wikipedia is NOT an academic resource and should NOT be cited in an academic paper, speech or project. Wikipedia itself says, “We do not expect you to trust us.” and that “because some articles may contain errors,” you should “not use Wikipedia to make critical decisions.” How to Reverse Engineer a Wikipedia Page While it is not a good idea to cite Wikipedia, you can use the “References” and “Further Reading” sections to help you find scholarly articles and related journals on your topic. Example: From the Wikipedia article on Karl Marx (Watch demonstration video here). John Hicks, "Capital Controversies: Ancient and Modern." The American Economic Review 64.2 (May 1974) p. 307 To find the article above, I searched for "Capital Controversies: Ancient and Modern." in the Library search box. I got the citation in proper APA style by clicking on : Hicks, J. (1974). Capital controversies: Ancient and modern. American Economic Review, 64(2). I chose the “View Full Text” link that goes to the database where I could read the whole article. Now you try: 1. Go to a Wikipedia article on your topic (if you are doing Food Scarcity search for Famine in Wikipedia) 2. Scroll down to the bottom section “References” and find a journal article (Hint: look for the word “journal”) 3. Copy the title of the article. 4. Go to the main search box on the Lynn Library website (lynn.edu/library) and paste the article title there, in quotes then hit 5. Click “Cite” and copy the APA citation. 6. Paste it below. Paste the APA citation for the journal article (found by clicking on Library Sources The Library has many resources to help you find background and academic information on your topic that you can use in your scholarly research project.
