Answer

To create an in-text citation, use the authors last names separated by commas, the date of publication, and the page number like this: (Kernis, Cornell, Sun, Berry, & Harlow, 1993, p. 103) For more examples and instructions, visit Purdue Owl's APA Guide (link below). To create the reference, list all authors (for 7 or fewer authors) as the first entry, like this, but be sure to double space with a hanging indent: Calfee, R. C., & Valencia, R. R. (1991). APA guide to preparing manuscripts for journal publication. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association. For more examples, visit Purdue Owl and our Cite APA Style LibGuide. Our LibGuide includes citation generators. Remember, you are always responsible for your own work, so please double check any references produced by these generators.
