How to cite

The following are our suggestions for how to cite books published by UBCOPL and UBCWPL. The examples given follow the Generic Style Rules and the 2007 Unified Stylesheet for Linguistics. If you are using a different citation system (e.g. APA or MLA), you will need to look up the proper formatting for books and journal articles.

For OPL volumes
Cite as a book, with UBCOPL as the publisher. The URL may also be optionally included.

For WPL volumes
Cite an entire volume as a book, with the UBCWPL volume number treated as a book series. The URL may also be optionally included.

Cite individual papers as articles in an edited volume. The URL should be included.
