The Word References feature allows you to keep track of the reference sources you consult when writing research papers, reports, and other documents, and makes it easy to insert a citation in a document. A
is a parenthetical reference in the document text that gives credit to the source for a quotation or other information used in a document. Citations usually include the name of the author and, for print sources, a page number. When you insert a citation you can use an existing source or create a new source. Each time you create a new source, the source information is saved on your computer so that it is available for use in any document. The report already includes two citations. You add several more citations to the report.
Scroll down, place the insertion point after “people travel” but before the period at the end of the first paragraph in the first column of text, click the Style list arrow in the Citations & Bibliography group, then click MLA Seventh Edition
You will format the sources and citations in the report using the style recommended by the Modern Language Association (MLA).
Click the Insert Citation button in the Citations & Bibliography group
A list of the sources already used in the document opens. You can choose to cite one of these sources, create a new source, or add a placeholder for a source. When you add a new citation to a document, the source is added to the list of master sources that is stored on the computer. The new source is also associated with the document.
When you create a new source for a document, it appears automatically in the bibliography when you generate it.
