It depends what style of citation you are using (APA, MLA, etc).  Here is a link to our Writing Center's Handouts, including an APA and MLA citation guide:  

Typically, an APA in-text citation looks like this: (Jones, 1998, p. 199) - with Author, Date, and Page number.

And typically, an MLA in-text citation looks like this: (Wordsworth 263) - with Author and Page number.

If you have more questions about citation, please use the Writing Center resources or ask another question (via chat or email us at, and we can try our best to help you out!
