Q. When citing a work and using a direct quote, do I leave the parenthetical citation of the original author?

I would like to use this quote from Wiley, L., 2014 "As of 1 January 2014, 1.3 billion people have Facebook accounts, 48%
of whom log in daily (Wagner, 2014). One billion users access Facebook monthly via their mobile devices. Over 500 million tweets are sent every day on Twitter (Holt, 2013) and more than 100 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute (Schroeder, 2013)."

Do I leave the citations in the quote?


Hi. According to Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 5th edition on page 121: "Do not omit citations embedded within the original material you are quoting. The works cited need not be included in the list of references (unless you happen to cite them elsewhere in your paper)."
