In-text Citations

Ms. Hooper's Basic Info and Tips on In-Text Citations:

  • What's included in the parentheses?:  (Author's Last Name, Date)
    • Example:  (Jones, 1998)
  • Parentheses belong at the end of the sentence, but BEFORE the period.
    • Example:  Ms. Hooper is happy to answer any questions about citations (Jones, 1998).
  • If you state the author's name in the sentence, you will simply put the date in parentheses after the author's name.
    • Example:  According to Jones (1998), Ms. Hooper is happy to answer any questions about citations.
  • If there is no author, use the title.
    • Example:  Ms. Hooper is happy to answer any questions about citations ("Using APA," 2001).
    • Titles of books are italicized; titles of articles, chapters, and web pages are in quotation marks.
  • ​If there is no date, write n.d.
    • ​Example (Jones, n.d.)
