In-text Citations

In-text citation is the authors name and the page number where the information that you are quoting, paraphrasing or summarizing is located within a parenthesis. The professional term for this is a parenthetical citation. It is a direct connection to your work cited page.

One Author

“We exist in essentially three states: awake, in deep sleep, and in dreaming sleep.” (Finkbeiner 41)

Work Cited

Ann, Finkbeiner. "Eyes Wide Shut." New Scientist. 11 30 2013: 41-42. Print.

With more than one author you either put all of their names or the first author’s name followed by et al (Latin: and others)
