  • In an in-text citation with three to five authors, list every author using the "author, date" method for the first citation. If the reference is cited again, use "et al." after the first author. However, do not use “et al.” in the references list. Instead, list the first six authors followed by an ellipsis and the final author’s last name and initials.
  • Use an ampersand (&) rather than the word “and” before the final author in a reference citation.
