In text (parenthetical) citations have taken the place of footnotes and endnotes. The form used refers the reader to the bibliography page for information on the source. Basically the citation will appear at the end of a sentence or series of sentences that need to be cited.
Basic form: end of sentence (Smith 42). The author’s last name is used, and the specific page where the information was obtained. If the author’s name is used in the text of the material that is cited, the name is omitted, i.e. (42). Other notes that are consecutive to this note do not need to repeat the author’s last name.
More than one source by same author: (Smith “Enough words of title to lead reader to right citing” 42). I.E. (Smith “The quest for” 42) or (Smith Danger in 42).
More than one author with same name: (Smith, L 42) (Smith, W 42).
The period for the sentence is placed outside the parentheses except when the citation is for a long quote. On a long quote form, the period is at the end of the last sentence of the quote, and the citation appears comes after the period.
