All about SOURCES In-text Citations and Works Cited
In-Text (Parenthetical) Citations When citing a quote in your paper, you need to follow up the quote with where you got it from (author, article, or institution name [for websites] and page number) You do this by putting in-text (parenthetical) citations after your quotes from that source
Notes for In-Text Citations Examples: “They were set to change the world of music forever” (Thompson 39). “The starting wage for welders begins around 70,000 dollars” (Bureau for Labor). The first part of the Works Cited entry is the part you put in the (PC). For example, if there is an article name but no author, you would put the article name in the citation.
Notes for In-Text Citations… The in-text (parenthetical) citation comes after the quotations, but before the period in the text. In-text Example: Wordsworth Wordsworth stated that Romantic poetry was marked by a "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (263). WordsworthWordsworth Romantic poetry is characterized by the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (Wordsworth 263). Wordsworth extensively explored the role of emotion in the creative process (263). Corresponding Works Cited Entry: Wordsworth Wordsworth, William. Lyrical Ballads. London: Oxford U.P., 1967. Print.
Notes for Parenthetical Citations… In-text example with no author: We see so many global warming hotspots in North America likely because this region has “more readily accessible climatic data and more comprehensive programs to monitor and study environmental change...” (“Impact of Global Warming in North America” 6). Corresponding Works Cited Entry: “The Impact of Global Warming in North America.” GLOBAL WARMING: Early Signs. 1999. Web. 23 Mar. 2009.
Citing the Bible In-text Example: Ezekiel saw "what seemed to be four living creatures," each with faces of a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle (New Jerusalem Bible, Ezek. 1.5-10). Work by Multiple Authors In-text Examples: Smith, Yang, and Moore argue that tougher gun control is not needed in the United States (76). The authors state "Tighter gun control in the United States erodes Second Amendment rights" (Smith, Yang, and Moore 76).
Works Cited basic format The words “Works Cited” should be at the top, in the center of the page, on the beginning of a new page. Works Cited lists should be in alphabetical order, without any numbers or bullets The first line of the Works Cited entry should be flush with the left margin, while the second line and every line after should be tabbed over to the right as an indent For Example: Thompson, Sheridan. “Book of ‘Stuff’: How We’ve Stopped Using Words.” Kansas City, 2011. Print.
Works Cited entry - Book Books by a single author follow a single form: Author last name, first name. Title of book. Publication city, State (initials): Publisher, Year. Print. Encyclopedias and reference books have a different form. “Article.” Name of Encyclopedia. Edition number, Year of publication. Print. Note: All print articles end in the word “Print”
Works Cited entry – Periodicals (a.k.a. Magazines, Newspaper), etc. Magazines follow a form similar to books Author last name, First name. “Name of Article.” Title of magazine. Day Month Year: page(s). Print. If an author is not given, jump to the next part of the entry (the article title). Newspapers are, again, fairly similar Author last name, First name. “Name of Article.” Title of newspaper. Day Month Year: page(s). Print.
