Answer

Works Cited Page

Start the citation with the title of the article or book. Put the title in quotation marks if it's a short work (such as an article) or italicize it if it's a longer work (books, entire Web sites):

"Practical Oral Care for People with Intellectual Disability."

In the Name of the Father.

In-Text/Parenthetical Citation

If no author is listed, use a shortened title of the work. Put the title in quotation marks if it's a short work (such as an article) or italicize it if it's a longer work (books, entire Web sites) and include page numbers (if there are any).


For example, if you had a Web site article with the title "Practical Oral Care for People with Intellectual Disability", the parenthetical citation would look like

("Practical Oral").
