I am making an article about Information Technology, mainly related to policies, and I have a list of some solution providers with their proposals; something like this:

Vendor1, Proposal related to...

I would like to know if the web links that are related to each proposal can be put inside the same list or should I reference them, in some cases I have only web pages and in other pdfs. So should I do this:

Vendor1, Proposal related to ... (information available at http//nosense.com
Vendor2, Proposal related to ... (information available at http//page1/document1.pdf)

or like this:

Vendor1, Proposal related to ... [1]
Vendor2, Proposal.... [2]

References
[1] ...
[2] ...

which one should be the correct way of referencing this information?

  • Have you considered putting the urls in footnotes?

Personally, I would put them in the bibliography, but either way looks fine, to me. I don't have a strong opinion, and I suggest you to do what you consider more readable.

However, I have often encountered copy editors who did have strong opinions on matters like this, so be ready to change it if they complain.

If the list is long, you could put it in a table. Otherwise giving the links in the text is perfectly fine.

The weblinks can be put within the text. It is not a crime.
