The online content you prepare for your project will be based upon the work of others, who should always be acknowledged. There should only be one Reference List at the bottom of each of the online pages you are preparing.

--MarkHill 11:22, 30 July 2009 (EST) This page is currently being updated to help you format references within your group project page and individual assessment page.

Here are examples of formatted reference on a page. Open this current page in edit mode to see the code used, simply copy and paste to create your own reference, replace the text with your own from PubMed.

Articles and Reviews

For your project article and review referencing/citation should follow the current PubMed format with the author first. This will mean that you should be able to simply copy and paste the reference from PubMed and link it to the external database in the abstract layout. References will appear numerically listed at the bottom of each page under the title "References".

Hill has described the development of the human embryo in a recent review. [1].

This is what the code looks like where the number 1 appears above:

<ref>Hill MA. Early human development Clin Obstet Gynecol. 2007 Mar;50(1):2-9. Review. [ PMID 17304021]</ref>

The important tags in the code are:

<ref> Place reference text here </ref>

Online Books

For your project online book referencing/citation should follow the current PubMed Bookshelf format.[2]

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM)

This database can be linked directly within the text for more information about specific genes and their protein products. The specific entry should also be listed in your reference list.

The protein beta actin.[3]

This code must be placed under your references heading for the reference list to appear:
