      How to Cite an Article for your BIOL 418 presentation

      Remember that when you work on your paper summary that you should be citing your article in the same format it uses in its references!  Use the same CAPITALIZATION, use the same punctuation [! * ? ^^ : -,] and use the same abbreviation system (Abrv. Syst.) that it uses!

      Bear in mind that capitalization in the article's title is often very different from how things are capitalized in the reference section!
