According to Purdue Online Writing Lab, when using APA format, follow the author-date method of in-text citation. This means that the author's last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text, for example, (Jones, 1998), and a complete reference should appear in the reference list at the end of the paper.

For more help with citing sources, see the Bibliographies & Citations Research Guide.
