How do you cite inside a paper?
When using APA format, follow the author-date method of in-text citation. This means that the author’s last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text, like, for example, (Jones, 1998). One complete reference for each source should appear in the reference list at the end of the paper.
How do you cite a source from a database?
Online Database Citation Structure: “Article Title.” Publication Title, volume, number, issue (if provided), Date published, Page numbers (if applicable). Database Name, DOI or URL.
What is the difference between primary and secondary references?
Primary sources are direct from an event or original source, such as the Declaration of Independence, and secondary sources are anything written about something that isn’t the primary account of whatever the source is referencing, such as textbooks discussing the Declaration.
Why is primary source important?
Primary sources help students relate in a personal way to events of the past and promote a deeper understanding of history as a series of human events. Because primary sources are incomplete snippets of history, each one represents a mystery that students can only explore further by finding new pieces of evidence.
