How do I cite your article on Best Bubbles? It looks like an article, but I found it on a website. We are only allowed 2 websites. I'd like to use it as an article. Here is the article I am talking about: ... st-bubbles

Hi smithmaggie77

Citing your sources is an important part of any science experiment. You are correct that this is located on a website. However, this is an article written in a magazine titled Scientific American. This resource would be classified as an article and not a website.

An article in a magazine undergoes a review process, by the magazine editors. While a website may not have any review process. This is commonly why website resources are limited by your teachers.

If you respond with which format you are using(APA, MLA, etc.), I can help you format your bibliography.

Hope this helps,
