22 How it All Works Together
As we have covered, reference list citations and in-text citations should match each other. They work together to clearly indicate which sources provide support to your assignment.
|You wouldn’t want to wear mismatched socks, just like you don’t want mismatched citations!||You want your in-text and reference list citations (and socks) to match each other!|
*One exception is personal communication, which is cited as an in-text citation, but is not included in the reference list.*
Why? Your reader can’t access your personal experiences.
