APA In Text Citation of Resources http://www.dianahacker.com/resdoc/ Description Example Books/ Articles/Journals Work with one author Normally, an in-text citation will be introduced with a "signal phrase" that includes the author’s last name, followed by the year of publication in parentheses. The page number in the source document, preceded by a "p.", should appear in parentheses immediately after the quotation. In cases when the author's name is not in the signal phrase, enclose the author's last name, the year, and the page number, in parentheses at the end of the quotation. As Smith (1998) observed, "There was only one way to go after that" (p. 97). “There was only one way to go after that” (Smith, 1998, p. 263). Work with two authors If the work cited has two authors, name both authors in the signal phrase and in parentheses at the end of the quotation. For the latter, separate their names with the "&" symbol. (Hartwick & Rogers, 1999). Work with three to five authors Identify all authors in the signal phrase or parentheses the first time you cite the source. In subsequent citations, use the first author’s name followed by “et al.” in either the signal phrase or the parentheses. In 2003, Berkowitz, Wadden, Tershakovec, and Cronquist concluded, “Sibutramine . . . must be carefully monitored in adolescents, as in adults, to control increases in [blood pressure] and pulse rate” (p. 1811). As Berkowitz et al. (2003) advised, “weight-loss medications should be used only on an experimental basis for adolescents”(p. 1811). (Berkowitz et al., 2003). Unknown Author If the author is unknown, mention the work’s title in the signal phrase or give the first word or two of the title in the parenthetical citation.
