Foris bibliographies home

Foris offers a references and bibliographies module. Bibliographies created in this module can be published onto a Foris Web page.

Many different definitions of what a bibliography is exist. One definition offers: “a list of books, periodical articles, government documents, or other materials systematically arranged by author, title, date and place of publication, publisher, details of edition, and page numbers. Published bibliographies on specific subjects are often found in the reference collection”.

Bibliography entries (references) can in Foris optionally be tagged with keywords and annotated. An annotation in Foris is defined as: “a note that describes, explains, or evaluates a particular document”. What the annotation actually contains depends on the context. A single reference can occur in many bibliographies, and thus be annotated several times.
