There is a very easy way to in text citation and referencing. In this video it will focus on
1. APA format
2. Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, 2013
3. Advance in text citation
Any format (style can learned)
See the bold area? It’s a quotation.
First we are going to cite at the end of the quotation. Click reference tab.
Select your style. I am going to choose A P A style. You can choose which one you want.
Now, click manage resource from reference tab.
Click, New, to input a new reference.
Select the reference type. I will use Book.
A box with few black field will appear. Now you have to fill it. I will collect information on the quotation, and I will fill these fields.
Try to find all information, however if you don’t find it. Leave it blank.
If the new reference is not on the current list, select it from master list. Then click copy to send it to master list.
Now, click insert citation from reference tab. Click the citation you want to insert. Remember citation will be inserted where your mouse courser is. So correctly position it before you insert it.
When a reference is a direct quotation, it is important to mention the page number. To do that click on the in text citation. Then click edit citation. And then input your page number. Click ok.
And this is the basics of creating in text citation. Now I am going to delete it. And show you how to insert an in text citation at the beginning of the quotation.
When you are using in text citation at the beginning of the quotation you cannot use the author name because you have to use it like this
Capital punishment is defined by Kronenwetter then the in text citation then the quotation.
To do that we have to exclude the author name from the in text citation, and have to manually write the last name of author.
Click insert citation, then click on the inserted in text citation. Click edit citation. Click exclude author.
Now remember what I said about direct quotation? Yes! You have to insert page number. But some style do not support inserting page number at the beginning of the quotation.
So again insert citation at the end of the quotation, then exclude, title, author & year input page number. And you are done. Easy Right?
