SEEJ uses the MLA in-text citation system. This means that you do NOT provide a footnote with the bibliographic reference, but use the system outlined below and include the full bibliographic reference to the work in the References Section.
When there is only one work by an author, cite in the format:
(Author Last Name ###).
Notice there is no comma.
When citing multiples pages or a selection of pages from a single source by a single author, separate the page numbers by a comma
When one work is cited frequently without any other works cited in between, you can provide a simplified citation (just page number, no author name required).
When there are multiple works by the same author, use:
(Author Last Name, Title ###) for books
(Author Late Name, "Title" ###) for articles
When there are two or more authors of a single work, use:
(Author 1 Last Name and Author 2 Last Name ###)
When there are three or more authors of a single work, use:
(Author 1 Last Name et al. ###)
When you are citing multiple works that are referenced in the same sentence, you place in the same parentheses separated by a semicolon
When citing a multi-volume work, use the format:
(Author #: ###)
If the reference, in the References Section, only lists one volume (Vol. #), you do not need to include the volume number in the citation.
Volume number should be included if the author cites more than one volume in the article. In this case the reference must list the "# vols."
For quotations that are more than four lines of prose or three lines of verse, place quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks.
