There are two parts to an In Text citation.
The brief information must lead your reader to the full citation on the References page.
For APA In-Text citations, you need three pieces of information when your writing includes someone else’s words, ideas, or facts.
1. For print sources (books and articles)
2. For web based or media sources include in the text the first item that appears in the Work Cited entry that corresponds to the citation (for example: author name, article name, website name, film name) and the date.
