Using Research
Citing E-mails and Interviews
How do I handle the citation when a researcher uses e-mail to provide me with some great information?
For e-mail, get the writer's permission to use his/her words. Remember to print off a copy of the e-mail for verification of the information as e-mail messages are not available to others. Style manuals give a sample of citing e-mail in reference lists.
Do I need to include a citation if I conduct an interview with someone?
Yes. Ask the person you are interviewing for permission to use their conversation before you start the interview. Their discussion with you should be credited to them since you are using their ideas. Make sure you include the appropriate citation for interviews.
