Unformatted text preview: an author as part of the sentence is this way. “Direct quotes require the inclusion of a page number or if not available, a paragraph number” (Volvo, 2013, para. 14). Bice and Simpson (2013) “also demonstrate how to execute a direct quote when the authors’ names should appear in the body of the sentence” (p. 254). Note how the period comes after the closing of the citation, as it did above. Finally, when a quote is more than 40 words, one should really think long and hard about including it.

If there is absolutely no other way to do a long quote over 40 words, it should be blocked, and double spaced without quotation marks. This entire section was done as a block quote and is 80 words.
