So you’ve been told to include in-text citations in your paper

but don’t know what exactly that entails.

No worries, we’ve got you covered!

In this video, we will go through what to include in an APA in-text citation

where to place it in a sentence

and what to do with missing information.

Let’s jump right in!

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

Let's start with what's an in-text citation.

An in-text citation is a concise way to identify the source of certain information.

It helps the readers to locate the corresponding entry in the reference list

at the end of your paper.

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

and if you're citing a specific part of a source

the page number or other locator such as a timestamp

paragraph number or even a heading.

Page numbers are not required when you're referring to the source as a whole.

By the way, you can generate your in-text citations super easily

with Scribbr’s free citation generator!

Now, there are 2 ways to integrate the in-text citation: parenthetical and narrative.

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