When using APA format, follow the author-date method of in-text citation.
This means that the author's last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text, for example, (Jones, 1998), and a complete reference should appear in the reference list at the end of the paper.
For example, the following entry might appear between entries of works written by Dean, Shaun and Forsythe, Jonathan.
Remember that for an in-text (parenthetical) citation of a book with no author, you should provide the name of the work in the signal phrase and the page number in parentheses.
