I want to ask the following question but I don't know on which site I can best ask this:

I am about to submit my master's thesis and writing a research paper along with it to submit in CHI conference. While writing I got stuck when I had to mention the references. Here, I have few questions for while referencing the material in the report and research paper.

  1. How to add a research paper references in the end of the report as well as in the research paper? Basically I am asking the format of reference. There are so many format and I don't know which one to use.
  2. How to add a website references in the end of the report and research paper? Again I am asking the format.
  3. How to mention these references in the paper or report? What I mean by this is how to include these references inside the report and research paper?

I have read couple of papers and I am extremely confused what to use where and how.

Is there a site within the Stack Exchange Network of sites where this question would be on-topic?

  • Probably Academia. Though they will tell you to ask the conference organizers.

This question would belong in the Academia SE. Please also go through their help-center before you post your improved question.

However, you might want to make your question a bit more clear, by explaining what are the norms and formats followed by the conference paper submissions.

The format depends on the conference and also the type of conference.
