  [Aroid-l] Scientific citations.
From: Jason Hernandez <jason.hernandez74 at yahoo.com> on 2017.01.23 at 15:00:12(23736)
Okay, I know how to cite books and papers in a scientific paper. If, for instance, I wanted to cite Deni Brown's most excellent aroid book, second edition, I would cite it in-text as (Brown 2010), and then put the full details in my Works Cited section. I also know what if she were to communicate something to me directly, and I were to cite that, it would appear in-text as (Brown, personal communication), and not appear in the Works Cited.

My question: suppose I were to cite a communication made to a listserv? How would I cite it in-text, and would I list the listserv in the Works Cited?
