I want to quote your Brain in a Nutshell Essay. Can you please provide me some bibliographic data of this essay. I don’t want to cite just Mo and a short-lived URL.
I was flattered to get this email, but I wasn’t sure how to respond. I suggested something along these lines:
- Costandi, M. (2007). The Brain in a Nutshell. Neurophilosophy Weblog. Retrieved on September 26, 2007, from http://scienceblogs.com/
As luck would have it, the second edition of Citing Medicine: The NLM Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers, which has just been published by the National Institutes of Health, includes a section on how to cite blogs, and provides some examples.
