Modernizing Citation Practices

Over on the blog there is an interesting post on how the method of citing texts in academic writing needs to reflect today’s digital publishing practices.

Referencing should instead be about directly connecting readers to the full text of your sources, ideally in a one-stop way [...] readers should be able to go directly (in a single click and in real time) to the specific part of the full text of source that is being cited. In other words, modern referencing is not about pointing to some source details for books that cost a small fortune and are buried away in some library where the reader is not present; still less about pointing to source details for an article in a pay-wall journal to which readers do not have access. That is legacy referencing, designed solely to serve the interests of commercial publishers, and 90% irrelevant now to the scholarly enterprise. If that is the best that we can do in connecting readers to our source texts, then it will have to do. But let’s face it, it’s not much use in today’s world.

Last month saw the opening of the Scottish Centre for Continental Philosophy at the University of Dundee. At their inaugural workshop, James Williams (Dundee) delivered a brief address entitled “ Continental Philosophy? Oh, Yes! ” In it, he describes the areas and topics he thinks are especially fertile ground for future work in continental philosophy, including economic fairness, new ways of understanding matter and mind alongside specific sciences, the immanent value of the arts, existential guidance, transforming power in and between groups, and what he calls “real theory.”
