Q. How do you use quotation marks and in-text citations?
To use a quote in quotation marks, place an in-text citation after the quotation marks which contains:
- The author's last name
- The year the work was published
- Page number on which the quote appears.
"Companies that operate internationally must evaluate the performance of their employees" (McDonald, 2018, p. 305).
The References page would look like this:
McDonald, L. (2018) International Business. Cincinnati, OH: Southwestern Educational Publishing.
