For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and an example will be provided.
The following format will be used:
In-text citation (paraphrase) - entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.
In-text citation (quotation) - entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote.
References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.
Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from the APA Manual (6th ed.).
For more tips on paraphrasing and quotation
Use only the first author’s name and ‘et al.’ the first time you discuss the research and thereafter.
