Whenever you use a source, you must have an in-text citation and a reference citation. They're a matched pair--like shoes or gloves. What are the differences between an APA in-text citation and an APA reference citation? How do the two work together?
This video explains how to format and coordinate your APA in-text citations with your APA reference citations in the context of a discussion board post. But the same principles for using APA in-text citations applies to anything that you write which cites sources: DB posts, APA research papers, APA PowerPoints, and so on.
APA in-text citations are just an abbreviated form of a reference citation (which is given only once). But APA in-text citations have to be used in every sentence that borrows from a source. But don't worry. There are simple, easy-to-understand tips and tricks for in-text citations that will have you citing perfectly in just a few minutes. In-text citations--the easy way!

Dr. Taylor Thank You for this. I had to review this because I am working on my dissertation and I really like the examples that you provide. I also watched your video on writing a literature review in 30 min. That was awesome as well.

Kristian & Zoe.
"We met through Soulmates four years ago. Although were both based in London, the chances of us meeting by other means were slim. We just got married! Zoe is the most wonderful woman Ive ever met, and I know we are going to have an extremely happy life together."
