Q: Is there a preferred referencing style to use?

Chris RogersMany questions and answers will involve citing journal articles and other scientific works. Clearly, it's desirable if there is a link to a free online version of the article.

Q: Should We Request the Close Vote Requirement Be Decreased to 3?
