How to add a new bibliographic reference into the wiki ?

  • First, go to the page “A bibliography on alternative media”

If you want to add a new reference (book, article, DVD, etc.) in the bibliography, please respect the following indications. Don't forget that one reference can be added into several different sections. For instance, a book on “community radio in Canada”, written by Jean DUBOIS should go in three sections :

  1. “D” (“Alternative Media Studies by Alphabetic Order”)
  2. “radio” (“Alternative Media Studies by Category of Medium”)
  3. “Canada” (“Alternative Media Studies by Country”).

To add a bibliographic reference into the section "Alternative Media Studies by Alphabetic Order"

  • Click “Alternative Media Studies by Alphabetic Order”.
  • Click on the first letter of the author's name.
  • Click “Edit this page”.
  • Add the reference respecting the following norms :

For a book :

  NAME, Surname (year), //Title of the Book. Sub-Title of the Book//, Place of Publication, Publishing House, Collection, number of pages.

For an article :

  NAME, Surname (year), "Title of the Article", //Title of the Review or Magazine//,  issue, Place of Publication, Publishing House, Collection, pages.
  • NOTE 1 You can select and copy (ctrl+c) right now this text, in order to add it just after in other sections of the bibliography. It's better than rewriting it again !
  • Click “Save”
  • Check if the reference appears without mistakes on the modified page
  • NOTE 2 Don't forget to do the same for the pages in French and Spanish if needed!

To add a bibliographic reference into the section "Alternative Media Studies by Category of Medium"

  • NOTE 2 If the category corresponding to your reference does not exist yet, create a new page respecting the following code :
  [[:bibliography:ams_category:new_category|New Category]]
  • Click “Edit this page”
  • Add the new reference respecting the alphabetic order and the following norms :

For a book :
