The author(s)' last name(s) and the date of publication must be included in the citation for any paraphrased and summarized content. List the author's surname first, followed by the publication date. Separate the author(s)' information from the publication date with a comma.
Summarized information may be found in various forms including executive summaries, position papers, fact sheets, and news releases. It can also appear in web posts at websites operated by government agencies subject to federal regulation or policy influence. Summarized information should be cited in the same way as an original article.
Citations are usually placed on the page where the summary appears. If the summary was published in a journal, then include the title of the journal and its volume number if available. If it was a newspaper article, include the name of the newspaper and its city location. You may need to check with your school library to find out how best to format citations for different types of materials.
In addition to the basic requirements for citing books, articles, and other works discussed above, authors should also list source information for all summarizations they create. This includes facts, figures, and quotations used in the text as well as footnotes or endnotes containing further reading or website addresses.
Citation of a Quotation
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 to cite a quotation within a quote.
Use the author date technique with in-text parenthetical citations when citing material from the outline in the manuscript. This can be done with credit "According to Author's Name (1996)" or at the conclusion of the phrase where you cited or used the outline. You should also include page numbers in the citation.
When citing in-text in APA style, use the author-date method. Jones (1998), for example, and a complete citation should be supplied in the paper's reference list.
The following people are the author(s) of the financial report: Give up to seven authors' last names and initials (e. g., Watson, J. D.), with the final name preceded by an ampersand (&). Include the first six names, followed by an ellipsis (...), then the last author's name if there are eight or more writers. The publishing year is: Put the year in brackets, then a full stop. For example, (2003).
Citations for articles are usually placed at the end of the paper or manuscript. When citing only one article, use this form: Author name, Title of article, Year published, Journal title, Volume number if applicable, Pages numbers where relevant.
When citing several articles by the same author(s), use this form: Authors name, Article title, Year published, Journal title, Volume number if applicable, Pages numbers where relevant.
Citations for books are placed on page numbers that correspond to the pages within the book. Therefore, when citing a book you must indicate which chapter or section you are referring to. Use this form: Chapter name, Page number.
When citing a financial report, include the author(s) along with the date from which they used information found in the report. For example: Ansell, J. G., & Tompkins, S. P. (2002). Financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2002. Melbourne: Ansell.
Amendments and corrections also need to be cited.
