Web Sites in Parenthetical Citations: To cite an entire Web site (but not a specific document within the site), it is sufficient to give the URL of the site in the text. No entry in the reference list is needed. Example:

Kidpsych is an excellent Web site for young children (http:// www.kidpsych.org).

REFERENCE CITATIONS IN TEXT– APA utilizes a system of brief referencing in the text of a paper, whether one is paraphrasing or providing a direct quotation from another author’s work. Citations in the text usual y consist of the name of the author(s) and the year of publication.  The page number is added when utilizing a direct quotation.

Indirect  Quotation with Parenthetical Citation

As metaphors for the workings of nature, Darwin used the tangled bank, the tree of life, and the face of nature (Gould, 1989).

Indirect Quotation with Author as Part of the Narrative

Gould (1989) attributes Darwin’s success to his gift for making the appropriate metaphor.

Direct Quotations – Always provide the author, year and specific page of the quote.

Direct Quotation with Parenthetical Citation 

Darwin used the metaphor of the tree of life “to express the other form of interconnectedness–genealogical rather than ecological”

(Gould & Brown, 1989, p. 14).

Direct Quotation with Author as Part of the Narrative

Gould and Brown (1989) explain that Darwin used the metaphor of the tree of life “to express the other form of interconnectedness–

genealogical rather than ecological”(p. 14).

CITING SECONDARY SOURCESWhen citing in the text a work discussed in a secondary source, give both the primary and the secondary sources. In the example below, the study by Seidenberg and McClel and was mentioned in an article by Coltheart, Curtis, Atkins, & Haller.

Seidenberg and McClelland’s study (1989, as cited in Coltheart, Curtis, Atkins, & Haller, 1993)

In the reference list, you would cite the secondary source you read, not the original study.

Coltheart, M., Curtis, B., Atkins, P., & Haller, M. (1993). Models of reading aloud:  Dual-route and parallel-distributed- processing approaches. Psychological Review, 100(4), 589-608.
