What questions do you have about citing do you have questions

What questions do you have about citing? DO you have questions??


In text citations

In-text Citations

  • When using in-text citations, make sure to use the author last name if known. This is your first priority.

  • If unknown, then use a shortened version of the article title. Make sure to put it in quotation marks.

    Example: (“Should Media”).


Punctuation

Punctuation

  • Don’t forget that the punctuation in a sentence follows the in-text citation. This is the case for periods, question marks, and exclamation points.

    Example:

    One question that researchers commonly propose is this: “Do video games really affect children mentally” (Johnson 4)?


When using quotes of four lines or longer

When using quotes of four lines or longer

There is evidence that shows why too much television is bad:

The April 2004 issue of Pedriatrics Magazine shows that too much television can produce increased anxiety,

fear, and even violence in children as young as three, and this has been documented on multiple occasions. (Leu par. 2)

Clearly television use must be monitored by parents and guardian figures to

show children what is appropriate.

Note: NO quotation marksDouble-space

Placement of the period


When using a quote within a quote

When using a quote within a quote

  • “Miley Cyrus has been heard saying, ‘OMG! Look at that picture of me’” (“Teens Today”)!

  • Note: Single quotation mark for quoted material; regular quotation mark surrounds entire quote


Paraphrasing vs direct quotes

Paraphrasing vs. Direct Quotes

  • “When using a direct quote (i.e. you are not changing any words in the selection you are utilizing), you MUST use quotation marks. Include an in-text citation after” (Brown 1).

  • If you are putting the information into your own words, do so but know that you still must include an in-text citation (Brown 2).

  • If you are using only a portion of a “direct quote,” use quotation marks for those words only. Then cite (Brown 3).


When using the same source

When using the same source

  • Once you use a source, you do not need to repeat that source every single time, say, if you proceed to quote it three more times in a paragraph. Use it the first time, then include only the page or paragraph number.


Example

Example

  • Today, most cartoons have some sort of violence in them. This causes children to “think that violence is acceptable” (Hossler par. 2). The major effect is that “children may be less sensitive to pain and suffering” (par. 3). Ultimately, violence will be eliminated, but until that happens, children will still reap the negative benefits of violent cartoons. They will “become aggressive or use harmful actions toward others” (par. 6).


Now while the citations are correct what s wrong with the previous paragraph

Now, while the citations are correct, what’s wrong with the previous paragraph??


Now what happens if you try to eat a sandwich with the bottom bread missing

Now, what happens if you try to eat a sandwich with the bottom bread missing?

Any volunteers?


So a sandwich

So…A sandwich?

Every good paragraph that utilizes research should be set up like a sandwich:

Top bread: A topic sentence that introduces the idea

The filling: Research to support your idea

Bottom bread: Your analysis  VERY IMPORTANT!


Check your works cited page
