Samples of Citations from the Essays in the Text

NOTE: nothing is boldfaced in your paper; I have used boldface type here, only to distinguish one example from another or for explanation

Internal Citations from Scott Carney’s essay on organ donations, page 615, par. 11:
If putting information from an essay into your own words, you still MUST give the citation that indicates the author and page number:
Even when organs like kidneys are available, doctors have a limited window in which to transplant the donor kidney. After 72 hours, the donor kidney is no longer viable (Carney 615). 
If you use the author’s name in your writing, you need only provide the page number:
Even when organs like kidneys are available, doctors have a limited window in which to transplant the donor kidney. According to Scott Carney, a reputable journalist, “a kidney has a 72-hour window before it needs to be transplanted into a patient” (615). 
The key to remember is that ANY information from the book MUST be cited.
ANY time you use a direct quote from a reference, it is best to introduce it into the paper.
If you have a quote over 4 typed lines, set your quote off from the left hand margin by 2 indents all the way down. Continue to double space, and introduce the quote with a colon.
Even when organs like kidneys are available, doctors have a limited window in which to transplant the donor kidney. After 72 hours, the donor kidney is no longer viable (Carney 615).  Because there is such a limited window of availability for “fresh” organs, Charles Krauthammer believes that organs should be available for money:
