    APA is referred to as the Author, Date format

    Im going to start with In-text citations, which refers to source citations in the body of your papers

    The 1st example is a Paraphrase or summary with the authors name in the text: Clemmer (1940)

    The 2nd example is a Paraphrase or summary without the authors name in the text: (Huebner, 2003)Whenever possible, you should paraphrase instead of using direct quotes.

    There are (5) criteria that should be met when you paraphrase....We are going to do a little paraphrasing exercise, so please take out a sheet of paper

    Read the passage, and take a few minutes to paraphrase itHere are (2) different examples of in-text citations:The 1st one gives the authors names and the date of publication at the beginning of the sentence, followed by the quote, and ends with the page number in the article where the quote came from.

    The 2nd example contains all of the same information, but at the end of the sentence in parentheses following the quote.

    Either format is fineWhen it comes to APA references, which go at the end of your paper, there are (10) basic things you need to remember...The 1st example you see is a reference citation for a film

    The 2nd example is how you should cite your film in your papers (Darabont is the director)The 1st example is a reference citation for your textbook. If you have an older edition of the book, you will need to pay close attention to the authors, the publication date, and the edition.

    The 2nd example is a reference citation for the Carceral book (which you should all be reading!)

    The 3rd example is an in-text citation for a book that does not include a quote.What does Turnitin Search?

    1) First, it searches a current copy and an archived copy of the publicly accessible Internet (more than 4.5 billion pages indexed so far). Our web crawler technology allows for a more directed search for new and updated text (so that it does not waste time downloading material that educators are not interested in). The archived copy addresses the issue of web sites that disappear over time.

    2) In addition to Internet text, Turnitin searches millions of published works including scholarly journals and newspapers indexed in 3 of the most widely subscribed to ProQuest Databases and all of the classics included in the Gutenberg collection. We are the only service to include data of this kind and we hope to acquire more subscription database material soon.

    3) Most importantly, our search area includes millions of student papers submitted to Turnitin since 1996. This means that we have the largest database of previously submitted work. This is also the only way to combat two forms of plagiarism:1) the use of the for-pay-cheat-site papers that students can buy and download and 2) internal sharing of original work between students in the same classes.

    In addition, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE: that a previously submitted paper match does not show any identifying information or any of the actual paper from the previous student. We follow FERPA and COPPA student privacy policies. You do get a communication box that appears so you can e-mail the faculty member who received this paper to follow up from a teacher to teacher perspective. I will show your this in a minute.

    It is also very important to note that Turnitin complies with all copyright laws. I will also show you where to get more information about legal issues.
