I'm working on the SMILE project and I'm wondering how I should cite my articles.

Use the following example to format the citation for your primary article:

Powell, K.L., Roberts, G., & Nettle, D.  2012.  Eye images increase charitable donations: evidence from an opportunistic field experiment in a supermarket. Ethology, 118, 1096-1101.

And use the following example to format the citation for your secondary article:

Foley, James A.  2013.  Chimps feeding habits suggests long-term memory use.  Nature World News. October 24, 2013.

Alternately, you could also follow this general format:  Last name, First name M.I.  Year.  Article or Chapter Title.  Page numbers.  Journal Title.
