    In an upcoming exam, it's not an open book exam but we need to reference at least 6 journal articles relating to the exam question (I chose the question about store atmospherics).
    Now, it's been told we don't need to do a reference list at the end but only cite in the text. Does that mean we just have to list the author and the year?

    If so, how will the markers find the article we're citing?!

    Thanks

    Try something like "quote" (Surname, first name. Article title. Year)

    So, after a significant period of time away from full-time education, I have my first written assessment to be handed in next week!
    My question is- I have 6 short questions to answer with a minimum of 300 words for each answer.
    Do I provide references after each answer that I give or just a list of my references on the final page?
    Thanks
