  1. I'm having trouble with citing a source. How would you format the citation correctly in MLA7? https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP79R00890A000900010002-5.pdf The source is a briefing: Created on the 11th of September 1957 by the NSC (National Security Council?? Is this correct?) Approved for release by the CIA in 2001 (so I guess published online in that year as well) Found on an online database (Central Intelligence Agency's Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room) Accessed on the 1st of May, 2018. Basically, the source was created in 1957, but was only declassified in 2001 (published to the public) and then published online. So when was it published?? Additionally, I researched online and apparently briefings like these were created each day for the President of the U.S. and could only be accessed by the most high-up officials. Is this true? Am I correct in guessing that the source I mentioned here is one of such briefings to the American President?
  2. How can i say that I'm using the exact materials and procedure word for word in my IA? Like copyright? Where do I say this and how?
  3. I am almost done my IA. I used desmos as my graphing software. Im not sure if i have to reference it and if so, how?
  4. Hello Although my entire school recommends the use of APA referencing, I found that APA does not include footnotes, which I find useful for my history IA. So the question is, does anyone know what kind of referencing style includes footnote and is quite similar to APA? [1] Judt, Tony. Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945 (New York: Penguin Press, 2005), 422. [2] Zhang, S.G. (1995), Mao’s Military Romanticism: China and the Korean War, 1950-1953, Lawrence, KS: University Press of Kansas. pg 257 I want recommendation of a reference style that either looks similar to, or alike [1] or [2] at the footnote. Thank you so much in advance!
  5. is is true that IB doesn't consider sites ending in .com like reference
  6. Hey, I have a problem with referencing in my extended essay namely I own a book that is a collection of essays of many different authors only edited by one guy. I have no idea how to referece it. Do I need to write every single essay title from that book that I used in my work or I just put one name of the whole book? And how to reference the author in the body of the essay - the name of the guy that collected it or the name of the essay's author? My supervisor couldn't help me :c
  7. I'm in a bit of a fix. I've finally decided on a course for university - medical chemistry and/or pharmaceutical science/chemistry. Here's my problem: Logically, my chemistry teacher should right my reference for UCAS, but I feel like she doesn't know my potential well enough, and she doesn't know the UCAS system well enough either. I should probably mention - I missed about a term of school this year due to personal issues. On the other hand, my English teacher comes from London, is very familiar with the UCAS reference system and has taught me for four years (including right now), and I'm doing my EE with her - as opposed to my chemistry teacher (who I've lost two terms with - one because I did chem SL in term 1 of IB, and second because of aforementioned personal issues.) I honestly trust and respect her judgement. On one side, I've got a teacher related to my field of study, but knows less of my potential and ability, and may not entirely put her full effort to make my application stand out. On the other side, I have a teacher who's known me rather long, understands my potential, and I know for a fact that she'll make it look outstanding. What do I do? Thank you for taking the time to help me.
  8. Hi. I was wondering if it matters what edition you use of the novel you are supposed to write about. I am writing my essay in Swedish A1 Literature and I'm using the saga "Njals saga" which is a translation. I got one book from school but I'd like to use another version of the same book because it has sub titles for different chapters which are really useful. Therefore I was wondering whether they were any regulaions for this? ...because it is a translation the novel is not quite the same.
