CITING WITHIN YOUR PAPER

The following examples show the way that citing should be completed if you were utilizing sources within your text.

PLEASE notice the sources are placed in parenthesis within the writer's information areas.  

SONGS AND LYRICS

In his lyrics for "Me and Julio Down by the School Yard," Simon has mixed his earlier flippant qualities with an earnest social statement (Simon).

SACRED TEXTS

The prophet says that good and bad measures will be dealt by God with a just hand: "For thus says the Lord: Just as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so I will bring upon them all the good that I promise them" (Jer. 32.42).

BOOKS & PAGES

One author:

"In defiance of the Aztec rulers, the macehvales (the common people) continued to worship fertility and agricultural female deities" (Anzaldua 33).

Two authors:

The ph balance is critical in body-fluid crisis control (Metheny and Snively 15).

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT

The sale of so-called durable goods has lagged behind projected sales of big-ticket items for more than a decade (U.S. Department of Commerce 234).

ENCYCLOPEDIA ARTICLE

According to many researchers in the field of genetic engineering, behavior control would be a reality by the turn of the century (Feinberg 95).

ARTICLE IN A REFERENCE BOOK

Massolo was largely responsible for First Chicago's initially strong position in Malaysian banking ("Massolo").

JOURNALS, MAGAZINES AND NEWSPAPERS

"The combination of these large patterns of similarity is particularly useful in examining Chronicle of a Death Foretold since both writers break down narrative authority through innovative use of multiple perspectives" (Christie 22).

 

AUTHOR UNKNOWN:

If the author of an article is UNKNOWN, you may put the first few words of the article's title (or web page name) in the parenthesis where the author's name would traditionally go. Do not leave a citation blank for an unknown author; this is still plagiarism. REMEMBER, Search Engines are NOT Web Sites! Do NOT cite them! (This information is provided after AJ asked what would be done.)

 

A Sample Works Cited Page

Citations in a Works Cited section should be prepared in an outline format, that is, with the second and subsequent lines of each entry indented half an inch from the left-hand margin. To show the line-breaks accurately, the frame for this text on your browser window should be at least as wide as the double-headed arrow below. Generally, however, all typing in your paper should be double-spaced.


FOOTNOTING (USED IN APA FORMAT ONLY...NOT MLA!)

MOST teachers will require you to use MLA style formatting; however, there may be some teachers that require APA style formatting (there aren't many of these. If they do ask for FOOTNOTING" then you will want to revert to APA STYLE formatting for footnoting.  This is how you should use footnoting:

Footnotes can also be used to expand upon points you are making,

Footnote numbers in the main text are placed at the end of the passage to which they refer.

For example:

Magnotti has the opinion that 'there are only two movies in the theaters worth seeing at this point'.1 According to Barnfield, however, there are at least three classics worth for to see on the big screen again.2

As you can see, a superscript number is used, and it is smaller than the size of your main text. Note also that the footnote number comes after the punctuation, and that there is no space between the end of the text and the footnote number.

THE FOOTNOTE IS PLACED ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE THAT THE INFORMATION WAS USED.

Referencing methods

Superscripted footnote reference Author, Title of Book (City of publication, Publisher, date) page number

EXAMPLES (These Would Be On The Bottom Of The Page)

1 Magnotti, Priscilla, The Decline of Films and Fall of Education (New York, Clarendon, 1992) 23

2 Barnfield, Linda, The Movies I Love (Chicago, Hyperion, 2003) 121




THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW A WORKS CITED PAGE NEEDS TO BE DONE.

" NOTICE THE WAY THE WORDS "WORKS CITED"  ARE CENTERED AND UNDERLINED.

" NOTICE THAT THE SOURCES ARE IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER.

" NOTICE THAT SEARCH ENGINES FOR THE INTERNET (YAHOO, GOOGLE) ARE NOT USED BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SOURCES
