- "Place tables as close as
possible to the parts of the text to which they refer."
- Label as Table, give
it a number and a caption as shown in the example below.
- Place the citation immediately
below the table. If the caption of a table provides complete information about the
source and the source is not cited in the text, no entry for the source in the
works-cited list is necessary.
- Preface the citation with "Source:"
if you are using the table "as-is." But, preface the citation with "Modified
from" or "Adapted from" if you changed the original table in any
way, or if you create a table based on data (In this case, you'd be citing the data).
- Cite as you normally would based
on where you found the table or data. If you found the information on a web page,
then format your citation as you would for a
web page. Likewise, if you found the information in a magazine article retrieved
from a library database, then cite it accordingly.
- A figure is anything that isn't
a table, including images, graphics, illustrations, maps, and photos.
