Inserting a reference
A reference or citation can be positioned at the beginning, middle or end of a sentence. When writing a citation, the year and page number(s) always go in brackets ( ). However, the author's name can be placed either in the text of the essay or in the citation. When citing multiple authors, use an '&' to separate them in the reference, and an 'and' in the body of the text.
