How do I include citations in my video article?

Throughout the article, any outside sources should be referenced in APA style 7th edition in the supporting English text. However, the ASL or signed video will focus on delivering the content in your own words clearly and articulately and does not need to include citation information. The translation needs to include in-text citations with author and year information and will appear alongside the video in both captions and a movable transcript. If the reference explicitly addresses an outside reference that you feel is worth mentioning in the video, that is up to the author’s discretion. All references must be documented in the English translation, so ensure you make note of citations for the final publication.
