APA Style: Basic Citations:

APA Style: Basic Citations Ethnography and phenomenology are qualitative methods suited to distinct purposes and settings (Creswell, 2007). Culture is forged through activities that instill shared meanings (O’Donnell, 2006; O’Donnell & Tharp, 2011).

Use quotations sparingly:

Use quotations sparingly Rather than viewing IPV as a problem of individual psychopathology or relationship dysfunction, the political DV movement characterizes domestic violence as “an expression of culturally-normative male privilege and domination” ( Lehrner & Allen, 2008, p. 221). As O’Donnell (2006) states “When we engage in activities with others in common settings, we share our understandings of our context and these shared experiences become intersubjective . These intersubjectivities are the shared meanings of culture." (p. 5)
