For example: See also our page on documenting periodicals in the Works Cited.Sometimes more information is necessary to identify the source from which a quotation is taken.
This article was co-authored by our trained team of editors and researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
Together, they cited information from 17 references.
Place the title in quotation marks if it's a short work (such as an article) or italicize it if it's a longer work (e.g.
plays, books, television shows, entire Web sites) and provide a page number if it is available. In this example, since the reader does not know the author of the article, an abbreviated title appears in the parenthetical citation, and the full title of the article appears first at the left-hand margin of its respective entry on the Works Cited page.
You should also use abbreviations (e.g., nat'l for national) where appropriate, so as to avoid interrupting the flow of reading with overly long parenthetical citations.
When a source has no known author, use a shortened title of the work instead of an author name.
For your in-text citation, use the author of the article, not the author or editor of the textbook.

This means that the author's last name and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your Works Cited page.
The author's name may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the page number(s) should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence.
