APA Citation in Brief
APA citation has 2 parts:
- In-Text Citation: A brief note, used in APA style, at the end of a sentence or idea that gives an author credit for their ideas. This in-text citation will link directly with an end of text citation. Instructors may call this an in-text citation or a paraenthetical citation.
- End of Text Citation: A collection of information that will help the reader to find out more about a topic. The end-of text citation should link directly to an in-text citation in a paper. Instructors might call this an end of text reference, a reference, or an end-of-text citation.
Each In-text citation should match up with an end-of text citation at the end of your paper in a reference list. The links and documents to the left can help you develop these citations within your paper. A NoodleTools account will help you create references and manage information in your research projects more easily.
