    Say:
    • I'm not sure if I cited #3 and #4 properly. There were a lot of authors. Is that how I should cite it?

    It looks okay to me. If there are several authors for one work you can list the main ones by name (the first two or three on the list) then say et al for the rest.

    Say:
    • Are there any other errors I should look at?


    1. “ Television Statistics.”

    Say:
    • It compares how much television boys and girls watch daily. It concludes that boys ages 10-17 are more likely than girls the same age to watch television daily.

    Even better:
    • It compares the viewing habits of boys and girls ages ten to seventeen and finds that boys are more likely to watch television daily than girls are.

    2. Graham, Judith. “How Television Viewing Affects Children.”
    http://www.umext.maine.edu/onlinepubs/htmpubs/4100.htm (23 Feb. 2004)

    Reading the title of that piece should give you an idea how to rewrite that first sentence. Do you see something missing in the second one?

    Wouldn't if have been better to have posted this in the thread that you started on the subject?

    If this is a reference list, I see no need to add comments about the works, just list them.

    Re: work cited list / annoated sources

    references to documents published electronically on the internet must be treated in the same way as those from printed sources, with the title of the document enclosed in quotation marks and the source indicated in your notes. Many documents may appear in more than one site on the Internet. You are advised to cite only those sites which you have actually visited. Give the author’s name (if known), the full title of the document, the document date (if indicated), the full web address and record the precise date of your visit (this is essential, since many sites are short-lived and others are changed with considerable frequency). (University of London guidelines for essay writing)

    Having said that, the list of references that you have sent us is a common bibliography which should go at the end of your paper. Whereas, if you want to use it as a footnote, you should list the authors’ forename first and their surname second (also in the footnote the forename and the surname are not separated by a comma), but otherwise your footnote entry should be identical to your bibliographical entries.

    Your third entry is fine, there isn’t much you could do, for there isn’t an editor of that text and ergo one should (as you correctly did) cite all the names.

    Whereas, your fourth entry can be shortened up:

    Federman, Joel (Edited by), “National Television Violence Study” in: Executive Summary Volume 3, University of California, Santa Barbara.
    http://www.ccsp.ucsb.edu/execsum.pdf (Last visited: 23 Feb. 2004).

    Last but not least, as Tdol has already pointed out, there is no need to add comments about the work you cite, until and unless theyspecifically ask you to do that.

    A good ref. book could be: How to Write Your Term Paper by Elinor Yaggy

    Two threads on the same subject isn't that much, especially since they were both started by the same poster. :)
