CITING INFORMATION CORRECTLY - depending on the kind of writing you are doing, you will select a format for bibliographic references or footnotes. (see http://www.lib.uci.edu/online/reference/citation.html) and exercise consistency and accuracy. If you only use the abstract you usually will not include it in your bibliography. There are many different examples of standard citation formats or style manuals. Standard citation manuals most commonly used by computer scientists include:
1. ACM Reference Format - the original style manual does not include electronic resources, thus you should review the list of references at the end of the ACM Word Template to see several examples for journal article, book, conference proceeding. A list of appropriate journal title abbreviations is noted since journal abbreviations are used. Most computer scientists submit their professional papers in LaTeX instead of MS Word so there is a separate style manual for that.
2. IEEE Style Manual - another potentially relevant style guide
3. Additional references including APA, MLA, Chicago/Turabian, etc
In addition to just trying hard to be accurate and consistent in your citation efforts, assistance is available via software that helps you write & cite. There are several options in selecting Bibliographic Management Software. This is used to manage information in a customized database environment that you create. You can upload citations from databases, enter lecture notes up to 8pp, include links to fulltext content; organize it the way you work best so that you can recall it, repurpose it and reapply it when you write. Finally, you can consistently format your bibliographic references with one keystroke in the format of choice with the latest standards for ePublications. Unfortunately, neither of these options support BibTeX or LaTeX, only general wordprocessing languages such as MS Word.
