In my small research paper (Bachelor level, university of applied sciences) that I'm writing for my internship, I want to make use of certain frames from videos that have been published by the company I'm interning at to showcase their product.
Now I'm wondering how I should go about including the source for the still (and while I'm at it, different materials).
Currently APA is used for all citations, now I'm left wondering how I should incorporate sources such as:
- A frame from a video (the timestamp might not be accurate enough, considering the video's are 30 frames per second?)
- Internal documentation/communication/imagery which will never be released to the public
- screencaptures of 3D models
the question is quite straightforward for source number 1, however, for sources 2 and three it might not be so simple.
Source types 2 & 3 have either a group of authors, no authors mentionned, or a single author. They also are highly confidential, and it is quite a lot of material.
So, my questions are:
- How do I go about citing a specific frame of a video?
- How do I deal with citing confidential information
- Another consideration is the sheer amount of information, we're talking hundreds of documents, images and videos. Do I actually have to cite each one individually?
- Considering most imagery used in my research will be put in the appendix, with it's own caption, do I need to incorporate the citation part (
(company name, author, year)) within the caption? Or how should I handle this?
