    A citation is a quotation from or reference to a book or author.

    After a quotation, the author's name and the title of the source are put in brackets: "....end of citation" (John Smith, Allegory of Nations)

    A reference to a work might appear as: "as discussed in Allegory of Nations by John Smith". Sometimes the publisher and date are placed in brackets following the citation.
