How to cite

What is the difference between a citation and a bibliographic reference?

A citation is a reference that has been embedded into a body of text, and contains information about the source. To cite a source in the text, follow this example:

(Author, year, p.) (Rodríguez, 1984, pp. 25-26)

A bibliographical reference provides information (author, year of publication, publisher, etc) that identifies someone else's idea or writing. The references should be listed at the end of your work in the bibliography and follow a citation style. The style you need to use depends on the discipline in question and the guidelines provided by the teaching staff.
