The nucleus of an atom is composed of protons and neutrons. Once you have given a reference listing in the text of the document, you are obligated to give a full reference citation somewhere in the document usually at the end. Given below is a common system used in engineering and science for the reference listings of this appendix.
For an explanation of the form of this system, see Appendix A. Martinelli, "Nuclear Thermal Rockets: Next Step to Space," Aerospace America, vol. Department of Energy, Wiley,p. Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 50th ed. Chemical Rubber Publishing Co. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Harvard University Press, You are more than welcome to make hypertext links as long as you give proper credit.
