Step two: “n.p.” for no publisher or “n.d.” for no date, leave author blank if there is no identified author Step three: if you cannot find ANY information about the source, do you think it is a good, reliable source?
Quick RemindersQuick Reminders Punctuation ALWAYS goes inside quotation marks (example: Mr. Pentzak yelled, “YOLO!” and he jumped out of the moving van. OR Ms. Brinkley confessed, “Mr. Pentzak is the coolest teacher ever.” Do not indent the first line of a citation, if it goes onto a second line, indent that one.
