How do you cite two or more references within the same parentheses APA?

How do you cite two or more references within the same parentheses APA?

When your parenthetical citation includes two or more works, order them the same way they appear in the reference list (viz., alphabetically), separated by a semi-colon. If you cite multiple works by the same author in the same parenthetical citation, give the author’s name only once and follow with dates.

What is an indirect citation and how do you cite it within the text?

An indirect citation or secondary source is when the ideas of one author are published in another author’s text but you have not read or accessed the original author’s work. Include both the original author and the author of the work where quote/idea was found in the in-text reference.

Can you cite a reference more than once?

It is OK to cite an article , even several times, in relation to various aspects discussed in one’s paper. There is no need to mention this paper several times in the bibliography, one mention is enough.

How do you direct quote a document?

Direct quotations involve incorporating another person’s exact words into your own writing. Quotation marks always come in pairs. Do not open a quotation and fail to close it at the end of the quoted material. Capitalize the first letter of a direct quote when the quoted material is a complete sentence.

Can you copy and paste if you reference?

Anytime you copy and paste verbatim from a source and do not give the source credit it is plagiarism. If you do copy and paste a passage word for word, you must put the information in quotations (i.e. ” “) marks and give credit to the author. However, you do not want to fill your paper with direct quotations.

How do you cite multiple references?

When citing multiple works parenthetically, place the citations in alphabetical order, separating them with semicolons. Arrange two or more works by the same authors by year of publication. Place citations with no date first, followed by works with dates in chronological order.

What is the difference between in-text citation and direct quotes?

One of the most succinct explanations that I have seen on the difference between these two concept comes from Boundless: A citation is using a particular idea that you got from another author. A quotation is using the exact words of another author. Note that some people refer to a “citation” as a “paraphrase.”
