APA In-Text Citations

What is an APA In-text Citation?

In plain and simple terms, APA in-text citations are found in the text of a project. Get it? In text. The purpose of an in-text citation in APA is to show the reader, while they’re reading your work, that a piece of information in your project was found elsewhere. They’re placed IN the wording or body of a project, not on the last page; the last page has full references. To learn more about those types of references, check out APA citation.

We’ve all heard about the word plagiarism, and you already know what it means. Simply put, including APA in-text citations are one way to prevent plagiarism.

Here’s what’s included in an APA 7th edition in-text citation:

  • Last name(s) of the author(s) or Group name
  • Year the source was published
  • Page number (if available)

Narrative:

In-text citation APA format, in narrative form, is one that shows the author’s name in the sentence itself.

Narrative APA in-text citation with page number:

  • Tyson, Strauss, and Gott (2016) encourage the use of simplified terms when it comes to discussing and defining the universe. For example, a small white star is simply called a white dwarf. Keep it short and sweet because the universe is confusing enough (p. 22).

Parenthetical:

This is a type of APA in-text citation where the author’s name(s) are in parentheses, usually at the end of the fact or quote.

Here’s the same APA in-text citation example as above, but with the in-text citations APA information in parentheses:

  • Use simplified terms when discussing and defining the universe. For example, a small white star is simply called a white dwarf. Keep it short and sweet because the universe is confusing enough (Tyson, Strauss, & Gott, 2016, p. 22).

MLA In-Text Citations

Everything You Need to Know About MLA In-Text and Parenthetical Citations

This guide focuses on how to create MLA in-text citations, such as narrative and MLA parenthetical citations in the current MLA style, which is in its 8th edition. This style was created by the Modern Language Association. This guide reviews guidelines they’ve published, but is not related directly to the association.

Researchers add quotes or information from books, websites, journals, and many other source types into their own projects or assignments. This is done to:

  • Provide additional evidence to defend or oppose an argument or claim
  • Provide background knowledge on a topic to aid in understanding
  • Include the essence or eloquence of another author’s work in a project

Narrative citation:

A narrative MLA in-text citation is when the author’s name is used in the text of the sentence. At the end of the sentence, in parentheses, is the page number where the information was found.

Here is an example:

  • When it comes to technology, King states that we “need to be comfortable enough with technology tools and services that we can help point our patrons in the right direction, even if we aren’t intimately familiar with how the device works” (11).

This narrative MLA in-text citation includes King’s name in the sentence itself, and this specific line of text was taken from page 11 of the journal it was found in.

 

Parenthetical citation:

An MLA parenthetical citation is created when the author’s name is NOT in the sentence. Instead, the author’s name is in parentheses after the sentence, along with the page number.

Here is an MLA parenthetical citation example:

  • When it comes to technology, we “need to be comfortable enough with technology tools and services that we can help point our patrons in the right direction, even if we aren’t intimately familiar with how the device works” (King 11).

In the above example, King’s name is not included in the sentence itself, so his name is in parentheses after the sentence, with 11 for the page number. The 11 indicates that the quote is found on page 11 in the journal.
