Example for in-text citation of article in journal

Any time you use an idea or information from an author you need to have an in-text citation at the end of the sentence or within the sentence.  This should also be noted in the references cited section.

For example, using my article on Tohono O’odham traditional foods:

(Author’s Last Name date and page)  =

There are many two organizations working to increase consumption and production of traditional foods on the Tohono O’odham Nation (Fazzino 2008, 40).    OR

Fazzino (2008, 40) notes that there are many two organizations working to increase consumption and production of traditional foods on the Tohono O’odham Nation
