Citations Each time you use someone elses words or ideas, you must provide a citation to give credit to that person. As you type your paper, you will use an in-text

citation, using the last name of the author of the article, and the page number, if given, in parentheses. Ex. (Logan 214) For each citation, you will provide a corresponding bibliography.
