11 Two Types of Citation
In APA Style, there are two parts to every citation: an in-text citation and a reference list citation.
In-text citations use only a few details of the source, enough to locate its matching reference citation in the reference list.
Reference list citations provide more information about the source, so that the reader can find it if they wish.
We will discuss both of these separately first and then together later. First, we will discuss reference list citations.
