Sample Citations

APA Basics

Citing in Text

  • Parenthetical citations come at the end of a sentence in the (Author, year) form: APA citing can be tricky (Skarbakka, 2012).
  • Narrative citations occur when the author's name forms part of the sentence in the Author (year) form: Skarbakka (2012) noted that APA citing can be tricky.

Include either form of citation in your sentences - but not both! For more information, check out our guide to how and when to cite.
