In-text citations

Format: Author, year, pages

Ex.: (Mughal, 2016, p. 14)

Note: If there are no page numbers, you can include any of the following in the text to cite the quotation (from APA Style Blog):

  • a paragraph number, if provided; alternatively, you can count paragraphs down from the beginning of the document;
  • an overarching heading plus a paragraph number within that section; or
  • an abbreviated heading (or the first few words of the heading) in quotation marks, in cases in which the heading is too unwieldy to cite in full.
