These citations are short in length and are placed in the main part of your project, directly after the borrowed information.
References are found at the end of your research project, usually on the last page.
For example, the author of the National Cancer Institute report in the example above might be fully written out as follows: (Publication No. Retrieved from https:// text (long form, correct but not recommended): (U. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, 2016) You might notice that this author name is rather lengthy!
Listing the full hierarchy of agencies as shown on the report in question (from largest to smallest) is correct; however, it is also correct to list the most specific responsible agency only (in this case, the National Cancer Institute).
How Does the In-Text Citation Correspond to the Reference List Entry?
Ensure that the name of the government author you use in the in-text citation matches the name of the author in the reference list entry exactly.
Included on this reference list page is the full information for any in-text citations found in the body of the project.
These references are listed in alphabetical order by the author's last name.
We recommend the shorter, more specific format for a few reasons.
However, if using only the most specific responsible agency would cause confusion (e.g., if you are citing institutes with the same name from two countries, such as the United States and Canada), then include the parent agencies in the author element to differentiate them.
