APA Style Guide - 7th: How do I cite?

How do I cite?

In-Text Citation

When you quote, summarize or paraphrase information you found in a source (book, article, etc.), you use in-text citations to give credit to the creator of the information. The purpose of an in-text citation is to help readers find the source in your References list. In-text citations go directly after your information. There are two types: Parenthetical citation uses parentheses. Narrative citation uses the author’s name in the sentence.

References Page

The References page lists the long citations for all the sources you cited in your paper and is included at the end of your paper. The purpose of a References page is to give the reader all the information needed to find the sources that you used. All citations are listed alphabetically, by the first piece of information (usually the author).
