Notes from Henry Komadowski, Centre for Env.Sci & Ag. Tech, Lethbridge Community College, email 1999
I should like to pass on advice given to me by my professors about internet citations. Never use the internet as a scientific source unless it is an online journal in which it can be cited as such. The reasons given to me for this are as follows:
I found these compelling reasons to avoid using the internet as a scientific source, but I find it a useful tool in determining things like public opinion or reaction to certain issues. It can also be a useful starting point to determine other sources for information. Some web cites have their own literature cited sections and these can be a good starting place for research. All in all, I would caution my fellow students about using internet sources. They have their uses but can be very easily misused.
