What are the parts for an in-text citation?


When paraphrasing or summarizing, SWS in-text citations include two parts. The first is the author's last name and the second is the number of the source in the source list.

When quoting, SWS in-text citations include a third part. There must be quotation marks at the beginning and the end of the words borrowed from the source.
