A Note about CQ Global Researcher Citations:
While citations for CQ Global Researcher articles generally follow the same format as those in CQ Researcher, there are a few exceptions. Because Global is published monthly, you will not have a publication day and the document ID prefix is now: cqrglobal. Because Global is only published in an online format, you must consult the downloadable pdf version for pagination. This version can be easily accessed by clicking on the "View PDF" button in the toolbar. However, for easy citing in popular formats, make use of CQ Press's exclusive citation tool, CiteNow! Please use the following sample in MLA format as a guide for CQ Global Researcher articles:
Example: Loewenberg, Samuel. "Anti-Americanism." CQ Global Researcher 1.3 (2007): 51-74. CQ Researcher. Web. 2 April 2009. <http://library.cqpress.com/cqresearcher/cqresrre2003060600>
