APA uses the author date citation style.
This style allows readers to find the information sources cited in-text and in the Reference List.
All citations are listed in detail, in alphabetical order in the Reference List at the end of the work.
When inserting a citation in-text, include the author's surname and year of publication. The brief in-text details of the author's surname and year of publication are enclosed in parentheses ( ).
If you include a direct quote, that is word-for-word, from another source the in-text citation must include the author, year and page numbers where the quotation appeared.
