I have a paragraph about a specific method used by an author and I am wondering where in that paragraph I should put my inline citation.
The paragraph in question goes something like this, where steps to complete the method is several sentences summarizing the paper.
The Harman method was devised by T. C. Harman .... steps to complete the method .... Harman showed that ZT could be computed from eq. (2.1)
Where should I put the citation? I see three options:
- at the beginning (right after the name)
- at the end of the first sentence
- at the end of the paragraph
Or some combination of the three options above. I am using IEEE citation format.
