Some Helpful Tips:
An in-text citation follows a quotation or paraphrase used in the text of your paper and directs the reader to the complete citation in the works-cited page. It usually includes the author’s last name and a page number. The page number goes in a parenthesis (15) and a parenthetical citation that directly follows a quotation is placed after the closing quotation mark. The other item (usually the author’s last name) may appear in the text itself or before the page number in the parenthesis (Rozakis 15).
