What is an embedded citation?
An embedded citation offers a one-click-away presentation of the source to the reader. (It does not use reference tags to create a link to a footnote, where the reader is then presented with a link to the source.) (See below for how the full citation is important for article maintenance.)
How do you do an embedded citation?
In-text citations include the last name of the author followed by a page number enclosed in parentheses. “Here’s a direct quote” (Smith 8). If the author’s name is not given, then use the first word or words of the title. Follow the same formatting that was used in the Works Cited list, such as quotation marks.
How do you properly quote a book title?
Italicize titles if the source is self-contained and independent. Titles of books, plays, films, periodicals, databases, and websites are italicized. Place titles in quotation marks if the source is part of a larger work. Articles, essays, chapters, poems, webpages, songs, and speeches are placed in quotation marks.
What is the correct way to list the author’s name in a citation?
The author’s name is always the first thing listed in a works cited entry, unless there is no author. Entries on your works cited page should be listed in alphabetical order according to the author’s last name. The first (or only) author’s name is listed as Last Name, First Name.
How do you end a quote from a book?
The author’s last name and the page on which the quotation can be found should be included in parenthesis at the end of the quotation, before the next punctuation mark. This is called a parenthetical citation, and will help your reader locate the full citation in your bibliography or works cited page.
How do you write an embedded citation?
Include a parenthetical citation when you refer to, summarize, paraphrase, or quote from another source. For every in-text citation in your paper, there must be a corresponding entry in your Works Cited list. MLA parenthetical citation style uses the author’s last name and a page number; for example: (Field 122).
