HOW TO CITE AN EBOOK FROM A WEBSITE, CLASSIC OR HISTORICAL WORK (REPUBLISHED)

Author, A. (Year of publication). Title of e-book in sentence case and italics. Retrieved from https://www.website.com (Original date of publication)

Formatted example:

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) Last names of author, year of publication, and page number(s) are placed in brackets at the end of the sentence:

...(Atwood 1972/2012, p. 98).

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:

Atwood (1972/2012) argued that survival is a theme that appears repeatedly in Canadian literature (pp. 10-14).
