Person Interviewed. Type of Interview (personal, telephone, email). Date.


  • As tempting as it may be, don't list your relationship to the person. It might feel weird referring to your grandfather or other relative so formally, but it's the rule!


  • List this source whether you use a direct quote or not. If you consulted with someone about your topic, use him/her as a source.


  • Personal interviews make great sources. Use them whenever you can.
