How do I cite in a PowerPoint?

January 6, 2023 /

To cite sources in a PowerPoint presentation, you can use in-text citations and a reference list or bibliography. The specific format for citing sources will depend on the citation style you are using (such as APA, MLA, or Chicago style).

Here are some general tips for citing sources in a PowerPoint:

  1. Use in-text citations to indicate when you are using information from a source. In-text citations typically include the author’s name and the year of publication.
  2. Create a separate slide at the end of the presentation for your reference list or bibliography.
  3. Use the appropriate citation style for your reference list or bibliography. This will typically include the author’s name, the title of the work, the date of publication, and the publication information (such as the publisher and place of publication).
  4. Include all sources that you used in your presentation in the reference list or bibliography, even if you only paraphrase or summarize the information.
  5. Use consistent formatting for all citations, following the guidelines of the citation style you are using.

By citing your sources properly, you can give credit to the original authors and help your audience understand where you are getting your information.
