Cite Right: CSE (Name-Year) In-Text Citations
This video provides a basic introduction to citing a journal article in-text using CSE Name-Year Style.
Cite Right: CSE Name-Year: In-Text Citations
What is an in-text citation?
In CSE name-year style, an in-text citation is a note in parentheses. Example: (Smith 2011)
It tells the reader that the information or idea is from another source and where they can find that source.
CSE Name-Year style uses:
Example: (Jones 2010)
Where does it go?
As close as possible to the relevant idea, word, or phrase. For example: This hypothesis was tested (Smith 2009).
Don’t repeat any part of the citation already in your sentence. For example: Smith (2009) found that temperatures increased after treatment.
Don’t forget to include a complete reference in your References at the end of your assignment.
