In-Text Citations

  • In-text, or parenthetical, citations indicate you are quoting, summarizing, or paraphrasing someone else's work or ideas.
  • In-text citations should correspond to a source on your works cited page to help your reader find the original source used.
  • Placement depends on how you incorporate a source into your writing - there is more than one correct way to cite in-text.
