Both the paraphrase and the direct quote should include the page numbers in parentheses. If the source does not consist of pages, the number of paragraphs mentioned in the paragraph (Author, Year, x) should be indicated.

     

    If more than one work is cited in the same parenthesis, the first one is written in the bibliography should be written first.
