(3) How well developed is the basic analytical point?;

Identify each source at the appropriate point in the text by the last name of the author or authors, year of publication, and pagination (if needed). Examples:

Glaser and Strauss (1969) discussed the importance….

Declining enrollments pose a threat to the faculty (Huber 1985, p. 375-82)

Merton (1940, 1945) argues….

In the fi rst in-text citation of items with four or more names, use the fi rst author’s last name plus the words “et al.” List all names only when “et al.” would cause confusion. In citations with three or fewer authors, all authors’ last names should be listed the fi rst time the reference is cited.

When two authors in your reference list have the same last name, use identifying initial, as in in (J. Smith 1990).

When you cite more than one source, the preference is that authors alphabetize citations within parentheses, as follows:

 ..issues that both faculty and students are expected to address (DeMartini 1983; Lynch and Smith 1985; Rippertoe 1977).Â
