1. When the surname and date of publication do not form part of the sentence, both data should be included between parentheses, separated by a comma. For e.g.: The means of communication give them sense of ownership (Balaguer, 2008).

2. When the surname of the authors is part of the sentence, you only inform the date of publication between parentheses.

(without italics and with period at the end).

For e.g.: Restrepo, Martinez and Raigosa (2002), found that … (first time quoted in the text), Restrepo (2000) affirm that … (from the second quote on).

3. When a source has six or more authors, only the surname of the first is written, followed by the expression (Without italics and with period at the end) and the year. You should use the symbol & to join the surnames of the authors both in the references of the quotes of the text that are in parenthesis, as well as, in the references at the end of the article.

Types of quoting.

For e.g.: In this sense, Bettelheim and Rosenfeld (1994) affirm:

Maybe what is most important is that the therapists will get to convert their own personality and their own feelings in therapeutic instruments. To do this, they should promote intimacy with themselves; explore their own impulses, passions, fears, hopes and wishes. It is necessary that they reach a compromise not only of their will to help, but also with other less benevolent, like the impulse to influence or dominate other persons (pp. 240-241).
