An in-text citation concisely identifies the  source of information or ideas. It helps the  

readers to locate the corresponding entry in  the reference list at the end of your paper.

You should include an in-text citation every  time you paraphrase or quote from a source.

In this video, you’ll learn how to use  in-text citations according to the APA  

Style 7th edition guidelines. I’ll  explain what information to include,  

how to integrate it in a sentence, and what to  do with multiple authors and missing information. 

Hi, I’m Jessica from Scribbr, here to  help you achieve your academic goals. 

The in-text citation always consists of the  author’s last name and the publication year,  

no matter the source type.

If you're citing a specific part of a source,  

also include a locator. For books,  this is usually a page number,  

for videos a timestamp, and for webpages,  you may use a paragraph number or heading.

You only need to include the page  number when you're using a direct quote.

To keep your in-text citations  correct and consistent,  

you can use Scribbr’s free citation generator.  Just click, and paste, it’s that easy!

Now, you can integrate the  in-text citation into a sentence  

using either a parenthetical  or narrative citation.

For parenthetical citations, write the author  name and publication year within parentheses.  

These are usually placed at the end of  the sentence, just before the period.

There is a positive correlation  between social media usage and  

anxiety symptoms in teenagers (Parker, 2019).
