 Citations in the Text

If you use someone’s words or ideas, you must give them credit with a citation in the form of a paraphrase or direct quote. paraphrasing: summarizing facts from a source


Since this paper is an annotation and you are summarizing an article, it is understood what the authors have written, so there is no need to cite what they wrote unless it is exactly their words, a direct quote or a secondary source within their article.



When it is necessary to cite a source that you have not read (“Smith” in the following example) that is cited in a source that you have read (“Santrock” in the following example), use the following format:

– If you cite something second hand, you must make it clear (e.g., Some fact (Smith, 1988, as cited in Santrock, 2005)). Note that in this example, only the Santrock would be placed

in the reference section.



– You must provide page numbers for direct quotes.

For example, Junus (2008) noted that “infrequent reinforcement is better in maintaining behavior than small frequent reinforcement” (p. 91).

Display a quotation of more than 40 words as freestanding block of text indented 5 spaces from the left margin (single spaced). Omit the quotation marks and include the page number in parentheses after the last period. Also, if the quotation is more than one paragraph, indent the first line of the second and any additional paragraphs 5 spaces.
