APA Style In-Text Citations Reference Department Albert S. Cook Library . General Rule Every parenthetical citation must correspond to an entry in your list of references. Put last name of author (editor, translator, compiler, etc.) followed by a comma and year of publication in parentheses. If you are giving a direct quotation, also give a page number (abbreviated “p.”). If the author or year of publication is clear from the prose outside the parentheses, do not repeat it inside the parentheses. Smith (1995) surveyed this phenomenon.

Punctuating Citations The punctuation in your own writing follows the parenthetical citation.

Citing Works by Two Authors Cite both last names every time you refer to the work. Inside parentheses, use the ampersand(&).
