Tips for narrative citations

Narrative citations are in-text citations where the author's name(s) are inside of the sentence, not inside of the citation. This style of citation helps your writing flow more naturally. See the In-text Citation Guide


Siponen and Vance (2010) asked ISS managers to report the, "most common and significant information security policy  violations" (p. 17).

Example adapted from:

Moody, G. D., Siponen, M., & Pahnila, S. (2018). Toward Unified Model of Information Security Policy Compliance. MIS  Quarterly, 42(1), 285-A22.
