Hi Timothy, if I write: "According to these leading scholars..." and then I put two long quotes of different scholars who support the same argument, do not I need to indent or to leave a blank line, I guess. I would write like this: According to these leading scholars in the field X: Bla bla bla...(Author, year, page). Bla bla bla...(Author, year, page). I mean, I just start a new line and I capitalize the first letter of the second quotation, I guess. Is it right?

Hi Timothy, again. I can be wrong, but I think that Chelsea is not active anymore on the blog, isn't it? If yes, perhaps, could you answer at her place to this , please?

Hi Chelsea! In my research proposal I often cite inside parentheses some works that are just illustrative of a problem and/or of a practice of research, etc. With this I mean that they do not cover the full literature of the problem under scrutiny, of course, but they are examples of literature that I have found. Therefore, I thought to use "e.g." inside parentheses to communicate to the reader that I do not intend that literature to be exhaustive. At the same time, if I start using it one time, I guess that I will have to use it all the times in which this situation occurs - which is very often - and thus, perhaps, the reader would be annoyed to read "e.g." all the times and he/she may think that my usage is not appropriate. I am actually uncertain about what to do. What is your advice?

Hi, Tymothy. I have found the answer to my question in this other your article: So, you don't need to answer me in this case! I don't know how to delete my comments. I don't see the command. However, thank you! :)

Hi Timothy, but what if I like a sentence in a paper that, for supporting its own arguments, refers also to other works? For example: Mario (2014) thinks that "Timothy is doing a great job, as it is showed by his many quick and informed responses (Brown, 2010) and the enthusiasm of the users of the web for his help (Red, 2012)". My question is if I can (or must) include the references in the in-text citation and if they have to be included in the reference list. Thank you in advance. Your help is much appreciated!

Thank you! For the reference list is fine, but aren't the names of the research groups too long for including them in in-text citation?
