Thank you very much.

Hi Chen,

When you say figures do you mean you'll be embedding a table or chart? If so, I'd recommend putting a brief citation below the figures that would include: name of the table or a short description and the source (ie name of the department), and then putting a full citation at the end of your presentation. This is more like adding captions below figures rather than the typical in-text citation.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for the prompt reply! I actually meant to embed some statistics number in text. From your answer, I asume that I should cite it at the end of the sentence as in an assay, in terms of format.
