I Wasn’t Crazy

For all you AP students citing titles out there, I checked the use of ellipses in internal citations. I was correct (whew!). No ellipses. Here’s what Colorado Sate University said:

1. Citing an Unknown Author

In cases where you are citing an anonymous source, or a source for which the author is unknown, use a shortened version of the title. It is important that the shortened title you use points your reader to the appropriate entry in the works cited list. For this reason, you will probably want to include the word in the full title which determines how that title is alphabetized in the works cited list. Also make sure that you punctuate the shortened title appropriately, as with the article title in the example below.


One anonymous review, appearing in the New York Times Book Review, boldly asserted that “Mrs. Peterkin of South Carolina is one of the first to write a book unaffectedly about negroes, without conscious or unconscious belittling mockery in view of superior white advancement” (“Again” 122).
