Writing - Example 7

Give credit to the author: complete the citation

 

 

As McEnroe astutely observes, "Circulation of light, air, and water by means of both open drains and closed conduits (i.e. piping) is a clear priority for the builders of these complexes. Concern for such circulation of the first two leads to a plethora of colonnades, light wells, clerestories, pier-and-door partitions, and windows in these structures, while concern for circulation of the last has resulted in extraordinarily complex drainage systems."

 

 

Verdict:  Incomplete citation.

The author attributes the writing to "McEnroe". However, unless the writing of the source consists of only one page, an in-text citation with the page number should be included at the end of the paragraph.

Recommendation:  Cite the page of the source.

  1. Use an in-text citation.
  2. Include the full source in the "works cited" list.(See Citation styles.)
