    Plagiarism 5.3 Plagiarism 5.3 Presentation Transcript

    • 5.3 Guidelines for Selecting In-text or Parenthetical Citations
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Avoiding unintentional plagiarism requires you to follow so many rigid rules that this lesson should be a relief.
      There are no absolute rules about whether to use in-text or parenthetical citations.
      There are some general guidelines that should help you decide which to use.
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use a parenthetical citation when:
      You have not appropriately identified the author, or title of the work if no author is provided, in an in-text citation and you need to provide information about the location of information in your source.
      (Required information might include page, paragraph, section, act, scene, or line numbers.)
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use a parenthetical citation when:
      You have appropriately identified the author, or title of the work if no author is provided, in an in-text citation, but you still need to provide information about the location of information in your source
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use a parenthetical citation when:
      You have cited the author in the text but need to specify which work because you are using more than one work by the same author.
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use a parenthetical citation when:
      You have identified the original source in your text but could only find the information quoted in a secondary source.
      • According to Samuel Raines, the crime rate in Peoria has sky-rocketed in the last ten years (qtd. in Jones 33).
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use a parenthetical citation when:
      Your information comes from more than one source (in-text citations would be too bulky).
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      It isn’t wrong to use a parenthetical citation instead of an in-text citation, but there are some situations in which you might prefer an in-text citation.
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use an in-text citation when:
      You are referring to the author of your source, and identifying his or her credentials would lend authority to information that seems opinion-based.
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Use an in-text citation when:
      You are citing a work with a corporate author (e.g. government agency, professional organization) and want to avoid a distractingly long parenthetical citation.
      Note: If you are using APA format, you are probably writing in a discourse community such as the social sciences that does not mind long parenthetical citations.
    • 5.3 Guidelines for selecting in-text or parenthetical citations
      Let’s practice.
      Select a scholarly, peer-reviewed article from your field of interest.
      Locate three in-text citations and three parenthetical citations.
      Explain what considerations might have influenced the author’s decisions about when to use an in-text or parenthetical citation.
      If your source only uses one kind of citation, do not look for another source. Explain why you think this may be the case.
