The acceptable alternatives to this method are:
- Paraphrase the material down into a single sentence with subsequent citation (McAdoo, 2011)
- Provide a citation reference at the end of each applicable sentence (McAdoo, 2011)
- Use parenthetical citation, where the author and year are identified in the first sentence and only the author appears in subsequent references in the paragraph (The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Academic Support Center, n.d.).
