Use hanging indentation.
For three or more authors, list only the first, and then “et al.”
If your source is part of a larger work (e.g., an article in a journal, a chapter in a book, an episode in a TV series), then you’ll also include the larger work’s title. Italicize the title of the larger work.
Where available, state the day, month, and year of publication, in that order. Month names longer than four letters will be abbreviated (Jan., Feb., Mar., etc.). If no date is available, you can omit this element from your citation.
For print works, use page numbers (preceded by a “p.”) or ranges of page numbers (preceded by a “pp.”).
For other online works, use page numbers (if applicable) and the URL or DOI, and omit the period at the end of citation.
If a DOI is available, it is preferred over a URL or permalink. DOIs should include the http:// and https://
Full URLs are recommended but optional especially for long URLs that are three or more lines long.
Narrative: For a narrative citation, which is when you refer to the author(s) within the sentence.
Parenthetical: For a parenthetical citation, which is when you refer to the author(s) after the idea is presented.
Two authors: Use both authors with "and" between them
Three or more authors: Use the first author's name followed by et al. in-text and parenthetically.
Unknown author: If the work does not have an author, cite the source by the first word of its title in quotation marks.
Secondary sources: Make sure you are always citing the author(s) whose work you are reading. If those authors cite a source, then that is an secondary source.
