Answer

APA

References Page

Start with the article title

Practical oral care for people with intellectual disability.

or

book title

Evicted: Poverty and profit in the American city.

In-Text/Parenthetical Citation

If no author is listed, use the first word or two of the title in quotation marks.

For example, if you had a source with the title Practical oral care for people with intellectual disability, the parenthetical citation would look like

("Practical oral," 2014).

 MLA

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").
