cite source

Living Agenda help to cite sources for TIPAESA form:


To cite sources that are credible use either a cite link or follow the best conventions of the GFDL corpus are those at Disinfopedia and Wikipedia:
en: Wikipedia: cite sources.

It is quite important that rumour, hearsay and disinformation not disrupt GPC protocol and especially not GPC Governance. When evidence is disputed, sources must be cited.

why: credibility


Politicians, journalists, academics, civil servants, candidates and especially trolls are often challenged to cite sources of both disputed and undisputed evidence. Usually this is because source credibility is in question, but in some types of discourse, notably scientific method and jurisprudence it is required to cite sources to get into information flow at all.

It is quite important that rumour, hearsay and disinformation not disrupt GPC protocol and especially not GPC Governance. When evidence is disputed, sources must be cited.

choices: credential, confidentiality, credibility


Many conventions apply to sources, their confidentiality, anonymizing, and credentials. For instance it is common in journalism to use credentialed attribution like "a scientist in Health Canada" if a person must claim the credential to gain credibility (say as a whistleblower) but must keep their identity secret and avoid public comment by civil servants on confidential matters.

Sometimes, only a full revealing of the author's identity will do to claim source credibility.

affects everything


Source issues are especially important in Living Agenda, war room, groupthink, lawsuits, in camera, meeting minutes, Shadow Cabinet and GPC in government, GPC as a learning organization and moving to a Governance Council and Code of Conduct for GPC Council. These require extending TIPA structures to full TIPAESA whenever evidence is challenged.
