I'm doing a research paper, using online materials (no, I am not using Wikipedia). I'm looking for a definitive statement of how web pages, blogs, forums and the like are to be cited in a scholarly paper.

Many thanks!

See this page from The Chicago Manual of Style, at "Website", about 80% down the page. If you want a really authoritative authority, the latest paper edition of the Manual has the same information and more. (But I only have an older edition on my own bookshelf, hence the link.)

It's due tomorrow. So - thanks! I have 5 footnotes (one is just the url for something I'm referencing in the paper, another is a definition of a term). One is a blog post and the others are industry trade publication articles.
