However, providing more information in the sentence can be helpful, particularly if you want your reader to know more about the source you are quoting. According to Greg Smith, author of Tomatoes on the Frontline, “tomatoes have lost their flavor” (18).There are a number of “situations” that you might encounter as you are trying to figure out how to cite your sources most efficiently:1)If you mention the author’s name in your sentence, do not include it in the citationExample: According to Greg Smith, author of Tomatoes on the Frontline, “tomatoes have lost their flavor” (18).2)If you are quoting from more than one source by the same author, then provide a short abbreviation of the title of the works so we can differentiate between them. You can also make it clear which source you are quoting by giving us this information in the sentence. The goal, however, is to offer enough information without repeating the same information over and over again.Example: Greg Smith argues, in his book Tomatoes on the Frontline, that scientists “need to pay more attention to the flavor of tomatoes” (18). However, he later admits, in an article he wrote for The New York Times, that “farmers can not just abandon these new advantages” because they “will no longer be able to sustain a large enough yield to stay in business” (“Yielding” 5).3)If the author is unknown, then provide an abbreviation of the title.Example: Farmers will need to address this “crisis of profit versus the health of consumers” (“Health Issues” 4).4)If you are quoting from a website, then provide the name of the website (but not the URL) Example: Surveys show that “65% of consumers would be willing to pay more for tomatoes if they were more flavorful” (Modernfood.com). 5)If there are two or three authors, then provide their last names. Example: (Rudimen and Jones 15) 6)If there are three authors separate their names with commas. Example (Barnes, Noble, and Cheatmen 6)7)If there are four or more authors, then only include the first name followed by “et al.” Example: (Fistfocker et al. 38).8)If there is no page number, then omit the page number and include the author’s name.9)Dictionaries: either provide a signal phrase that tells us which dictionary you used or provide that information in your citation.44

10)Bible: name the specific edition, the book, the chapter and the verse (Oxford New American Bible Proverbs 4,21-28).11) When quoting a poem, cite the line number (be sure you provide the title of the poem somewhere in your sentence).12) If you should happen to encounter two different sources whose authors share the last name, provide the first initial to indicate which one you have quoted.Remember, the main idea is that you are trying to provide enough information so that your reader can easily locate the full citation in your works cited page. This also means that you want to avoid repetition and unnecessary information. Keep in mind that:1)The first timeyou quote from a source it is best to provide the title of the piece and the author (and, if you feel
