Frequently Asked Questions

How do I cite a section? There are no page numbers!

That’s because page numbers are only relevant to a print book. Pagination is an artefact of the printed medium - a work is divided into pages simply because they are the units of publication in a paper format. With web editions, the unit of publication is the web page, which may be a complete chapter, section or even the entire work.

If you want to cite from one of our web books, it is perfectly legitimate to use just the URL.
