Title: Effect of the Web on Undergraduate Citation Behavior: guiding student scholarship in a networked age
Authors: Davis, Philip M.
Keywords: citation analysis
Issue Date: Jan-2003
Publisher: Johns Hopkins
Citation: Portal, (3):1, 2003, p. 41-51.
Abstract: This article provides the last update to a longitudinal study tracking the research behavior of a multi-college undergraduate course in microeconomics from 1996 to 2001. Student term paper bibliographies grew between 1996 and 2000 but included fewer scholarly resources. In 2001, a return to citing scholarly sources was demonstrated when the professor provided clear and enforceable guidelines in his class assignment. The accuracy and persistency of cited Web documents also increased as a result.
