Game references in academic texts. Mapping reference practices in game studies. (English)
Abstract [en]

This is an empirical study mapping out different citation practices to games in the field of game studies. From an analysis of 7 journals, 3 conferences and 22 canonical books within game studies, 5 different strategies for game referencing have been identified. Games scholars can either totally refrain from referring to the games they discuss, only reference some specific games, cite them as something special and deviant from other sources, refer to them in accordance with other sources or refer to games with regard to their unique properties as a reference. For the reference librarian working with issues relating to game studies the diverse reference practices among game scholars pose a specific challenge. A challenge that partly can be overcome by knowing how game scholars frame games and how these frameworks are in conflict with the ways librarians frame and classify sources due their physical properties.
