What About In-Text Citations?
In-text citations are needed whenever you reference an idea or concept you learned from your research. Even when you paraphrase, you must include the author's last name and the year of publication. When you include a direct quote from your research, the page number is also needed. For example:
Paraphrase: (Smith, 2014).
Quote: (Smith, 2014, p. 28).
