Stating evidences

Do I have to use the “format” to list my evidences?
For example, can i do:

  • The author states that “…”
    or do i have to do:
  • The author states that “…” (name of the author and year)

i think you can just say "the author uses x device, asserting that “…”

try using synonyms for states like argues, asserts, describes because it makes your writing more complex!

For the RA, you don’t have to worry with in-text citation. It is considered a draft, and there is only one text from which the quotes could possibly come. Your reader will get it.

What about line numbers?
