What is the difference in format between long quotes and short quotes in essays?
  1. Long quotes are set up without quotation marks, but with the text distinguished from the rest of the essay by an indentation for every line of the quote.
  2. Long quotes are not appropriate to use in an academic paper because using more than 3 lines of someone else’s work can be viewed as plagiarism.
  3. Short quotes should use quotation marks (“ “), while long quotes should be italicized.
  4. None. Short and long quotes are formatted identically in essays.
