Print. Demonstrates how to properly reference a second work in Works Cited using the title First Time's a Charm by author Lourdes Colon. This response has been verified as correct and useful.
If you cite two works by the same author, you must include a short title in your in-text citation, and if two or more works by the same author have the same title, you must include extra information so that the reference, while not as concise, is apparent. This is called a "multiple publication" and it's quite common in scientific papers.
In this case, because both articles deal with climate change, they address the same topic. Therefore, they should be cited together. There are several ways to do this. One way would be to paraphrase one article and then quote part of the paraphrase within your text. For example: "One study claims that climate change will cause floods in coastal areas... Another study claims that climate change will cause deserts to expand in tropical regions..." You could also compare and contrast the two articles or place them in context within the broader debate on climate change.
Citing multiple works by the same author allows the reader to see how various authors approach the same topic. It also ensures that your readers understand what other researchers have found about some subject matter.
Multiple publications from single sources are called "citations aggregated". These citations appear as,,, etc. in the bibliography or references section at the end of your paper.
A work referenced page will always begin with a title. Other items listed here may include the author's name, the book or article in which the work is found, and the date it was published.
Items used to identify a work in another reference list or bibliography can also be included here, such as a number or term that distinguishes it from other works by or about the same author. Items used to distinguish references within the same source are shown within the source itself. For example, an article might contain an index listing its pages with headings such as "See also: X and Y."
Works cited pages are required for any work published in a periodical or anthology series. They are also helpful for identifying sources used in previous articles or books. Because there is no set format for these pages, they are often included at the end of papers or books rather than at the beginning. However, if you are including references solely from previous articles or books, they should be listed on the works cited page.
Citations in academic papers follow a specific format based on how closely the work being cited relates to the paper's topic.
When citing two or more books, arrange them in the same order that they appear in the reference list (i.e., alphabetically), separated by a semicolon. If you reference numerous works by the same author in the same parenthetical citation, use the author's name just once and then dates. For example: Jane Austen; 1811-1817.
When referencing three or more books by the same author, place each one of them in a separate paragraph followed by a period. Use the author's name for each reference, followed by the date. For example: John Doe, Jane Smith, and Bob Brown. January 1, 1900-December 31, 2000.
If the work is by a group or organization, refer to it as such. Include the title and, if applicable, the person(s) responsible for its creation. Examples: The Chicago Manual of Style, published annually by the University of Chicago Press; first edition 1970. Second edition 1980; third edition 1990.
Books written by an individual are usually cited alone, unless they include references or sources, in which case those elements are indicated by footnotes or endnotes. Examples: One cannot simply "go out and buy" a Shakespeare play. There are no copies of his complete works extant today. Therefore, all we have are references to other works that contain details about his life and career. Footnotes are used for sources of information.
Unless there is no author, the author's name is always the first thing given in a works cited entry. Entries on your works cited page should be listed alphabetically by the author's surname. Last Name, First Name is used for the first (or only) author. For example, for a book with two authors, James and John, the entry would read: James and John, "A Book Reviewed." The New York Times, March 4, 2015.
If the work is anonymous or undated, it may follow the format Anonymous, or (if a specific date is known) Anonymous. This is because it is impossible to know how long an article, interview, speech, or other form of communication will continue to be published after its initial publication. Such items are therefore treated as if they had a permanent status, so that their inclusion in the bibliography is not affected by their subsequent disappearance. An example of this type of item is "An Interview with X", where X is the unnamed interviewer. In general usage, however, the term "anonymous" does not apply to works that have been written with the intention of being published; instead, these are referred to as "unpublished".
For books with more than two authors, include each one's name along with the title in parentheses following the word "author" (with the exception of encyclopedias, which use Editor instead).
In-text citations feature the author's last name followed by a page number in parentheses. "This is a direct quotation" (Smith 8). If the author's name is not mentioned, use the title's initial word or words. Make use of the same formatting as in the works cited list, such as quotation marks. Footnotes are used to reference material that cannot be incorporated into the main text. They can be used for sources, quotes, and other materials that aren't part of the main flow of the essay.
An example of a bibliography entry: Gulliver's Travels (4). This book was written by Jonathan Swift and can be found in the British Library collection.
Bibliographies are lists of references or books used while writing an essay or paper. There are two types of bibliographies: formal and informal. In a formal bibliography, each entry is listed according to a specific format. These include author's surname, year published, title, publisher, location where the book can be found, and sometimes page numbers. Informal bibliographies are simply lists of books used by the writer, often including notes on why they were chosen.
When quoting from a source, it is important to give credit where it is due. Without adequate citation, your work will be considered plagiarism and could result in disciplinary action against you. When referencing one book while writing another, it is important to make sure that you are following a proper format.
