In-Text Citations Made Easy (APA)

436 ratings | 66344 views
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!

how do you cite wikipedia in text APA
Luka Sazdanovic (5 months ago)
+truHipHopTv Don't use wiki in your citation, you will be murdered by your prof, instead use one of the cited pages in the wiki article.

Dr. Taylor, just curious what software you use to make your videos? Are you using PowerPoint and recording your voice over the slides? I would like to create a similar video for my students. Thank you
David Taylor (9 months ago)
Right, Kevin. Most often I just record a PowerPoint with a voice over.

This is great, but it doesn't show the required hanging indentions for the reference lists.
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Good point. This is for discussion board posts and doesn't present a references page or hanging indents for that reason. Maybe I should have made that clearer.

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.
