In-Text Citations


When you use work by other people in your reserach, you must cite their work, using a source citation, in the body of your text, as well as complete a bibliography.

A source citation is placed in your text at the time you refer to a work by another author(s), as a paraphrase or quote. A citation is a short reference in the text to a full description of that source in the reference list..
