How to do a in-text reference if you use 2 sources in one sentence.

Question5 :


Based on the quotations provided, summarize the text with an appropriate in-text reference.


1. "An academic summary tells the main points of a source text in brief form. As a condensed version of the source material, it can range anywhere from a couple of sentences to a short summary article, depending on the length of the source and your purposes for writing. In writing a summary, you need to select the most important points of the source text and report on (vs. react to) them using your own words." 


This quote is by Melanie Marse from the article "Writing an Academic Summary" on page 4 published in January 12, 2008.

2. "In the conclusion, the author provides a retrospective overview of the most important parts of the text, presents the results obtained and makes proposals for further research. The summary is not used to pose new problems or present views or conclusions made in relation to questions that were not addressed in the previous parts of the paper." 

This quote is from the "EUAS GUIDELINES FOR COMPOSING AND FORMATTING STUDENT PAPERS" on page 22. The guideline is published in 2020.

Satoshi, I apologize as per Wyzants policies I can not give an actual solution to your question, but I can show you an example with steps. A summary is a brief or condensed version of information or a paragraph that is presented. Take for example this paragraph I pulled from a website about Frank Lloyd Wright. "An American architect, designer, writer, and educator, Frank Lloyd Wright promoted organic architecture, which was best exemplified in his most famous work—Fallingwater. During his seventy-year career, Wright designed over 1,100 buildings (seeing over 500 of them realized), authored twenty books and numerous articles, and was a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe until his death. Already renowned during his lifetime, Wright is now considered the “greatest American architect of all time." So I would look at each of the sentences and see if I can combine them and summarize them. For example the first few sentences "An American architect, designer, writer, and educator, Frank Lloyd Wright promoted organic architecture, which was best exemplified in his most famous work—Fallingwater." Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, designer, writer, and educator who designed organic architecture buildings like "Fallingwater". to cite it I would use this diagram (authors last name or article title if no author, page number or none if not needed). i.e. (Frank Lloyd Wright) so it will look something like this An American architect, designer, writer, and educator, Frank Lloyd Wright promoted organic architecture, which was best exemplified in his most famous work—Fallingwater (Frank Lloyd Wright). I hope this helps.
