In-text citations in your Cancer Smore

Images

When citing images, start your in-text citation with the word "Fig", which stands for "figure". Then include a number that corresponds with the image. For example, if this is the first image on your Smore, use the number "1." Then include a short description of your image, followed by a reference to the source. Here are some examples with proper punctuation:

Text

If you would like to include information in your Smore that you have summarized or paraphrased, cite that information just like you would in a written paper. You would write your statement, follow by the name of the author in parenthesis. If no author is given, use the first words in the source as it is listed in your citation. Here are a couple of examples:

Pancreatic cancer is very difficult to detect. A person can have pancreatic cancer for years without knowing it. That is why is it often called the "stealth" cancer. (Pulcini).


One of the primary risk factors for developing pancreatic cancer is obesity (American Cancer Society).

Video Clip, Audio Clip & Charts

If you want to cite a video or data chart in the body of your Smore, it's pretty easy! Begin with the word "Source" followed by a colon. Then right after that, simply copy and paste the MLA citation that indicates where you found this video or data chart. Here are some examples:
