    You would not site it quite the same as a website. there is actually a specific way to cite the online version of a newspaper article. Author, A. A. (Year, Month Day). Title of article. Title of Newspaper [in italics]. Retrieved from http://www.someaddress.com/full/url/ So for your New York Times article, it would be something like this (see the attached picture).

    That's APA format by the way. If you need it in a different format let me know. I'm unsure what you are asking in your second question. Could you maybe paste the paragraph that you are referring to into a post and let me take a look at it? I'll be able to tell you if you did it right.

    Im still writing it. But I'm using 3 quotes out of the same book doesnt that mean I include the author in the first in text citation then leave them out of the rest. ex. "blah blah" (blah 90-91) "blah blahz" (100-02) Or would I put the author for each in text citation

    Sorry, I'm at work and got called away. For APA when citing in-text you need to do a full citation for anything that you quote. When you are paraphrasing you cite the first instance with author year and the rest with just the author. Examples: Paraphrase: According to John Doe (2008), proper citation is critical in academic work. Your thoughts about it for a sentence or two. Doe claims that people who cite their sources are more intelligent. OR Proper citation is critical in academic work (Doe, 2008). Your thoughts about it for a sentence or two.People who cite their sources are more intelligent (Doe). Quotations: According to Doe, "One hundred percent of people who did not cite their papers properly, received a poor grade" (2008, p. 2). Your thoughts for a while. "Most instructors are very strict when it comes to citing a paper" (Doe, 2008, p.p. 3-4). Just a word of caution, and I give this advice every time I help someone asking about citing multiple quotes, especially by the same author, so don't feel singled out. Be very careful in how much you rely on quotes in your papers. Most instructors will only allow a relatively small percentage of quoted material in a paper before marking you down, usually at or less than 10%. Paraphrase whenever you can and quote only when it is necessary to keep the original author's words unchanged or to add the occasional emphasis. Instructors want to see original thoughts as much as possible, and even paraphrasing requires some original thought just to get the information into your own words. So be careful of over quoting your sources because it is a good cue for the instructor or give closer scrutiny to the amount of quoted content in your paper.

    Rechecking my APA manual and I was wrong leaving the year out of the parenthetical citation when paraphrasing. You can leave the date out only when not using a parenthetical citation at the end. Example: According to John Doe (2008), proper citation is critical in academic work. Your thoughts about it for a sentence or two. Doe claims that people who cite their sources are more intelligent. is okay. Proper citation is critical in academic work (Doe, 2008). Your thoughts about it for a sentence or two.People who cite their sources are more intelligent (Doe). is not okay. The second parenthetical needs to be just like the first. I tried to find anything regarding citing multiple quotes from the same author in the same paragraph, but found nothing. I'll have to dig deeper to see if there is a set rule for APA.
