Transcript: Providing credit where credit is due Direct Quotations Paraphrase Summaries Arguments Ideas Should have more in-text citations than direct quotations How often should I cite my sources? When in doubt, every 2-3 sentences General or common knowledge does not require citation Anything you can find in the dictionary or encyclopedia is common knowledge All language taken directly from another source MUST be placed inside quotation marks Too many direct quotations is like a speed bump in your writing Use them only when the original language cannot be reworded without loss of meaning Use blocked quotations VERY sparingly No more than 2 Paraphrase whenever possible In-text citations “And so he sounded very intelligent” (Smith 1999). The truth is that the novel is a genre which resists exact definition. This in itself is not particularly striking, since many things—‘game’, for example, or ‘hairy’—resist exact definition. It is hard to say how ape-like you have to be in order to qualify as hairy. The point about the novel, however, is not just that it eludes definitions, but that it actively undermines them. It is less a genre than an anti-genre. It cannibalizes other literary modes and mixes the bits and pieces promiscuously together. You can find poetry and dramatic dialogue in the novel, along with epic, pastoral, satire, history, elegy, tragedy and any number of other literary modes. (Eagleton 2005) Commas should always go inside quotation marks and double quotation marks should always be used, except for quotations within quotations. The Reference List Begins on a new page at the end of the body of the paper Each entry in the reference list corresponds to a citation included in the paper This is what distinguishes a reference list from a bibliography Article titles aren’t enclosed in quotation marks Titles of articles, books, chapters, essays, and articles are capitalized sentence-style, meaning only the first word of the title (and subtitle) is capitalized Only newspaper, journal, and magazine titles should be capitalized headline-style The date of publication should appear immediately after the author’s name Eagleton, Terry. 2005.

Reference lists should be alphabetized Second (and third or fourth) line(s) of entries should be indented Entries for books with more than one author should only reverse the first author’s name and the other names should be in conventional order Smith, Jonathan, and Giles Snyder. 2004.

Transcript: DOCUMENTATION Use documentation when citing sources by quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing and then giving the credibility as researchers and writers Cover the documentation styles with MLA and APA APA is used mainly in the social sciences Both are two part systems that consits of: 1. Brief intext parenthetical documentation for quotations, paraphrases, or summaries 2. More-detailed documentation in a list of sources at the end of the text MLA and APA require that the end-of-text documentation provide the following basic information about each source you cite: - author, editor, or organization providing the information - title of work - place of publication - name of organization or company that published it - date when it was published - retrieval information for online source There are more than two types of documentation styles. We focus on MLA and APA because that is mostly what college students are required to use As the examples show, when you cite a work in your text, you can name the author either in a signal phrase or in parentheses. If you name the author in a signal phrase, give the page number(s) in parentheses; when the author's name is not given in a signal phrase, include it in the parentheses Modern Language Association (MLA) In-Text Documentation: As Lester Faigley puts i, "The world has become a bazaar from which to shop for an individual 'lifestyle' " (12) As one observer suggests, "The world has become a bazaar from which to shop for an individual 'lifestyle' " (Faigley 12) Work Cited Documentation Faigsley, Lester.
