How to Reference a Citation Within a Citation - http://youtu.be/rqui6nHVYMw
Hello Crystal Rose; I have a problem when referencing with 3 to 5 authors. I only want to cite one author in text such as (John et al., 2010), but it came out with all authors (John, Barve & Mary, 2010). Please show me by video guiding. thanks a lot!. Hung.
such a shameful video, useless, u cant even show how to write a citation and instead explaining the finished bibliography. go to university once again and learn something good before uploading crap and earning money and eating food from lies told on youtube.
I noticed that for authors under 6; et did not have period: et al. However, with 6 or more authors et always carried a period: et. al.
Was this an oversight or is it correct to use this format depending on the number of authors or is it correct either way: with or without the period?
