Helpful Resources
What's the Deal with My
Reference List?
Reference List citations in APA need to include:

Who - the author
When - the date
What - the title
Where - the place of publication and publisher

This information for each source is cited at the end of your paper in a Reference List.

What About In-Text Citations?
In-text citations are needed whenever you reference an idea or concept you learned from your research. Even when you paraphrase, you must include the author's last name and the year of publication. When you include a direct quote from your research, the page number is also needed. For example:

Paraphrase: (Smith, 2014).
Quote: (Smith, 2014, p. 28).
