Q. How do I cite a source with multiple authors (two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and more!)?
For the reference entry, input author names in the order that they appear in the publication -- Author's Last Name, First Initial. Middle Initial. For one or two authors, include the author name(s) in every citation
(Nelson & Smith, 2020) or (Nelson & Smith, 2020, para. 5) for a quotation.
Three or more authors include the name of only the first author plus “et al.” in every citation
(First author’s last name et al., Year) Example: (Johnson et al., 2019)
