The Quotation

From Purdue University, OWL website:

Short Quotations
Formatting quotations is covered on pages 117-121 in the Publication Manual.

To indicate direct quotations of fewer than 40 words in your text, enclose the quotation within double quotation marks. Provide the author, year, and specific page citation in the text, and include a complete reference in the reference list. Punctuation marks, such as periods, commas, and semicolons, should appear after the parenthetical citation. Question marks and exclamation points should appear within the quotation marks if they are a part of the quotation but after the parenthetical citation if they are a part of your text.


Practice quoting from your sources.
