  • Citation Best Practices
    BIOL 235 – Disease and the Developing World
  • In Text Citations
    Author, Date Format:
    Loremipsum dolor sit amet, consecteturadipiscing (Author, Date).
    According to Author (Date) loremipsum dolor sit amet, consecteturadipiscing.

  • Strategies
    Using a source for background information
    In the last 10 years there has been a rapid increase in research interest in tuberculosis (Davies, 2007).
    Using a source as an example
    Despite being the most widely used vaccine globally, several controlled trials have shown a wide variation in efficacy from 80% (Smith, 2008) to zero (Jones, 1999).
  • Strategies
    Criticizing or analyzing a source
    Although Wong (2005) recommended use of the drug CureMe-Ophan, her studies were financed by the company that manufactures the drug and her findings have not been replicated (see Miller, 2007 and Ito, 2008)
    Comparing two sources
    Moore (1993) and Ortiz (1999) both tried to resolve a similar health crisis, but Ortiz’s plan was more effective and less expensive.
  • Best Practices
    How often to cite?
    Use of quotations?
    What do you need to cite?
    What don’t you need to cite?
  • Works Cited Section
    When using the Author, Date style of in text citations, works cited entries are in alphabetical order
    When using the Numbered style of in text citations, works cited entries are in numerical order based on the first appearance of each item in the text.
