Citations in the text usual y consist of the name of the author(s) and the year of publication. The
page number is added when utilizing a direct quotation.
Indirect Quotation with Parenthetical Citation
As metaphors for the workings of nature, Darwin used the tangled bank, the tree of life, and the face of nature (Gould, 1989).
Indirect Quotation with Author as Part of the Narrative
Gould (1989) attributes Darwin's success to his gift for making the appropriate metaphor.
Direct Quotations – Always provide the author, year and specific page of the quote.
Direct Quotation with Parenthetical Citation
Darwin used the metaphor of the tree of life "to express the other form of interconnectedness–genealogical rather than ecological" (Gould & Brown, 1989, p. 14).
Direct Quotation with Author as Part of the Narrative
Gould and Brown (1989) explain that Darwin used the metaphor of the tree of life "to express the other form of interconnectedness–genealogical rather than ecological”(p. 14).
CITING SECONDARY SOURCES --
When citing in the text a work discussed in a secondary
source, give both the primary and the secondary sources. In the example below, the study by
Seidenberg and McClel and was mentioned in an article by Coltheart, Curtis, Atkins, & Hal er.
Seidenberg and McClelland’s study (1989, as cited in Coltheart, Curtis, Atkins, & Haller, 1993)
