Guidelines for CNS Infographic Usage
For authors of CNS infographics
- Authors will be asked whether or not they agree with the sharing of their infographics if they are chosen as one of the finalists.
- If authors agree, we ask that some verbiage is added to the chosen infographic to be posted on the website. For example: “This infographic was chosen as 1st place finalist in the CNS 2021 Infographic Competition.”
Citing CNS infographics in research
CNS Infographics may be cited in your research providing that you include the following information:
- Infographic title
- Website name
- The infographic publisher (e.g. Canadian Nutrition Society)
- The creation date (although it is also acceptable to use the “posted” date)
- Original URL
For example, the formula for citing an infographic for APA is as follows:
Author Last Name, Author First Initial. (Published date). Title of the infographic. Retrieved (date of retrieval), from URL.
