When you are writing a dissertation, one of the most challenging aspects you will face is the citation page. You are required to cite any source you use both within the text, and in the reference page at the end of the finished product.
APA style requires a different citation based on the type of source you are using as well as the number of authors for that source. It is best to refer to the APA handbook for citation information, as it will explain the proper punctuation and format for each type of course and for each type of author.
Generally speaking, in text-citations include the last name, followed by the date of the publication. If there are more than 3-4 authors, the first author’s last name can be listed as it appears in the reference page, and then “et. al.” included after that to refer to the remainder of the other authors. You can also refer to the authors within your text, followed by the date of the publication in parenthesis.
