About citing conference papers & proceedings

For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and an example will be provided.

The following format will be used:

In-Text Citation (Author date) - entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.

In-Text Citation (Author date, page number) - entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote or when paraphrasing a passage, summarising an idea from a particular page or you want to direct the reader to a specific page.

References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.

Information on citing and some examples were drawn from the AGPS manual (6th ed.).
