Examples of In-text Citation Placement


1. Block Quote:

Some researchers discuss how they chose the structure for their wiki:

 


We have also seen a number of wikis where the community-defined structure itself served as a barrier to new users. Both of us had been stymied before by wikis that contained an underlying information structure so idiosyncratic we could not find our way to the information we wanted. We decide to address this by developing the initial structure ourselves, with feedback from users. We planned a fairly slow and controlled process , working on different parts of the structure at different times (Deitering and Bridgewater 2007).

 

2. Direct Quote:

"Almost all faculty members completed their initial task" (Brown 2007).

 

3. Paraphrase:

Web analytics are used widely by commercial companies and marketing departments to assess the effectiveness of their Web sites (Sterne 2002, 67).

 

 

Additional Guidelines


1. A book with an editor in place of an author includes the abbreviation ed. (for more than one editor, use eds.). The in-text citation does not include ed.

Greenberg, Joel, ed. 2008. Of Prarie, Woods, and Water: Two Centuries of Chicago Nature Writing. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.

(Greenberg 2008, 42)

 

2. When using an author's name in your text for the first time, use his or her full name (first and last):


Jim Sterne (2002) explains numerous methods for measuring web site success.

 

3. If including a page number, as you would with a direct quote citation, use the following format for in-text citations:


In 2001, Brown and Duguid described these as "networks of practice" (203).


Some refer to these communities as "networks of practice" (Brown and Duguid 2001, 203).
