APA Style

APA Style Blog
      "References in APA publications are cited in text with an author-date citation system and are listed alphabetically in the reference list" (American Psychological Association [APA], 2010, p. 174). The in-text citations work with the references page at the end to provide the reader with all the information they need to track your sources (APA, 2010).

   "Usually the author's last name and a page reference are enough to identify the source and the specific location from which you borrowed material" (Modern Language Association 214). The paranthetical reference "(Modern Language Association 214)" shows that quotation came from page 214 of a work by the Modern Language Association.
