In-text References

It is essential in scientific reports and essays that proper acknowledgement is given to the research and ideas of others. Material that is a direct quote must be indicated as such, by quotation marks or by setting the material apart from the text. The quote must also be acknowledged with a reference to its source. Where a direct quote is not made, but a fact is stated which relies on a particular author(s), the statement must be acknowledged with a reference. A properly cited reference to the literature enables another person to locate it.

References are cited in the text in one of two ways.
