When credit is given for a direct quote, the quotation marks are closed and the parenthesis is opened, but the endmark is saved and placed after the closed parenthesis.
|Direct Quote (Long)||A direct quotation of more than 4 lines is indented 10 spaces from the left margin, no quotation marks are used and the period precedes the parenthetical documentation. *Make sure to maintain double space throughout.*||
According to Civitello:
New Orleans, however, was not a disappointment. Its Creole cuisine—ruling class French and Spanish cuisine prepared by African cooks, with some Native American elements—is unique in America. A prime example of this fusion food is gumbo, a sausage and seafood stew. The word is African and so is the use of okra—an African word for an African vegetable—as a thickener. But the roux base is French, the combination of sausage and seafood is southern Mediterranean, like French bouillabaisse, and the seasoning is file—powdered sassafras leaves obtained from Native Americans.

|Multiple Works by One Author||
are listed on the works cited page, the reader must be told to which book or article the text refers. This is done by including a key word from the title of the book or article in the parenthesis. (Note: Proper marking to designate the type of source must be included, e.g. italics or quotes).
Assume that the paper used information from two sources by Christopher Johnson. The first book is entitled Menus a Culture or Tradition, and the material noted is from page 10 of this book. The second is from an article entitled "Menus Around the ," and the material noted is from page 65.
|Two Authors||each last name must be listed within the parenthesis unless the authors are referred to in the sentence as attribution. Names should appear in the order listed in the original source.||
|Three or More Authors||
If more than 2 people have authored the book or article, the author's last name, a comma, and the words et al. are used.
Assume the book is authored by Eleanor Pitney, Eva Cocchi, Sharon Rady, and Doryce Kilguss, and the idea expressed is taken from page 3 of their book.
|Indirect Source||When someone has been quoted in your source, and it is the words or ideas of this person that you are summarizing, paraphrasing or quoting directly, then you must make this clear by adding the abbreviation for "quoted in" to your usual parenthetical documentation.||Example:
Johnson stated, "It is always necessary to choose a panel of judges that mirrors the target market" (qtd. in Elliot 12).
If there is no author/s given, use the first item listed in the works cited citation. Usually this will be the title of the article or section in quotation marks. (This is why it is very important to create a correct works cited before deciding what must be put in the in-text documentation!)
Assume an article entitled "Problems with Plagiarism" has no author. Place a key word from the title in parenthesis OR begin your sentence with reference to the title of the article and end with the page number in parenthesis.
*Note: The key word chosen must be used consistently for any in-text citations using the same article, and the key word must distinguish that title from other similar titles.*
