CITING WEB PUBLICATIONS

“You should include a URL as supplementary information only when the reader probably cannot locate the source without it or when your instructor requires it. If you present a URL, give it immediately following the date of access, a period and a space. Enclose the URL in angle brackets, and conclude with a period. If a URL must be divided between two lines, break it only after the double slashes or a single slash; do not introduce a hyphen at the break or allow your word-processing program to do so.” [5.6.1]

You may use shortened forms of publishers’ names in the list of works cited. Articles (A, An, The) may be omitted along with business abbreviations (Co., Corp., Inc., Ltd.) and descriptive words (Books, House, Press, Publishers). A university press uses the abbreviations U and P. If a publisher’s name is comprised of the name of one person, only the surname is needed. If a publisher’s name includes more than one person, only the first surname is needed.

Ex: Use Harcourt for Harcourt Brace Jovanovich; Cambridge UP for Cambridge University Press; Norton for W.W. Norton and Co., Inc.; Prentice for Prentice-Hall; U of Chicago P for University of Chicago Press; Wiley for John Wiley & Sons.

–  –  –

You may omit the publisher when citing books published prior to 1900. Instead of a colon, use a comma after the place of publication.

PARENTHETICAL DOCUMENTATION

Parenthetical documentation refers to the brief acknowledgement of sources within a research paper. Generally, parenthetical documentation includes the author's last name followed by a page reference.

Sample Parenthetical References [6.1-6.4]

Direct quote—author's name in reference:

“Miss Emily turns out to be not a Southern lady; she is a Clytemnestra, a figure out of tragedy” (Brooks 161).

Direct quote—author's name in text:

Brooks explains that “Miss Emily turns out to be not a Southern lady; instead, she is a Clytemnestra, a figure out of tragedy” (161).

Paraphrasing—author's name in reference:

Miss Emily and her madness are likened to the tragic character of Clytemnestra (Brooks 161).

Paraphrasing—author's name in text:

Brooks likens Miss Emily and her madness to the tragic character of Clytemnestra (161).

Corresponding entry in the lists of works cited:

Brooks, Cleanth. William Faulkner: Toward Yoknapatawpha and Beyond. New Haven: Yale UP, 1978. Print.

MISCELLANEOUS GUIDELINES FOR PARENTHETICAL REFERENCES

If you are citing a work with no author or editor, incorporate the title of the work into the reference.

Use the complete title if brief; otherwise, use an abbreviated version. Provide enough of the title so that it can be easily located in the works cited. [6.4.4] Ex: Fifty-three percent of Grenada’s population is Roman Catholic (“Grenada”).
