How to cite quoted excerpts from items in Aisberg

1. Research output - Prodotti della ricerca

In order to cite a specific part of a source, you have to give page numbers. It could be that the copy in Aisberg is a scan of the publisher's version, i.e. with right page numbering; but in general, the pagination of the archival version may differ from the publiser's, or it may be totally absent.

Best practice is to procure a copy of the published version (through your library's document delivery service).

If this is not possible, in order to direct your readers to the location of the quote within the document, give the number and/or title of the section/chapter, and in addition the number of paraghaph.

Example:
"This latter interpretation can be strengthened by noting that the syllabus of any course of the faculty had to be published prior the beginning of the academic year, in July, whereas the development of the podcasting service began some months later, the course started in February, and the decision of using podcasts was taken in March at that point, in order not to violate the educational pact defined by the syllabus, the listing of the required textbooks and materials could not be modified anymore and the podcasts were simply proposed as additional (not compulsory) bibliographic materials, accessible through links from the lecturer's site."
