How to Write Bibliography

What is Bibliography?

A bibliography is a listing of the books, magazines, and Internet sources that you use in designing, carrying out, and understanding your science fair project. But, you develop a bibliography only after first preparing a background research plan -- a roadmap of the research questions you need to answer. Before you compose your bibliography, you will need to develop your background research plan.

How to write a bibliography?

Collect this information for each printed source:

author name
title of the publication (and the title of the article if it's a magazine or encyclopedia)
date of publication
the place of publication of a book
the publishing company of a book
the volume number of a magazine or printed encyclopedia
the page number(s)

Collect this information for each Web Site:

author and editor names (if available)
title of the page (if available)
the company or organization who posted the webpage
the Web address for the page (called a URL)
the last date you looked at the page
