I'm wondering about punctuation with regard to citing a book after a quotation.


I'm working on a companion guidebook which refers often to the book which it accompanies. What is the correct punctuation for quotes we will put in the margins of this guidebook? These quotes refer back to the original book. For example,

“Being identified with the personality—mistaking your personality for who you are—is where the internal split has its roots.” p.44

My question specifically has to do with the "p.44." Is it correct to use small "p" followed by a period? And is there a space between the period and the number?

Thank you so much for offering this service!
