In-Text citations are also referred to as Parenthetical acknowledgement, or References in Text.

You do not indicate which Citation Style you are using.  From the MLA Handbook, "... a brief parenthetical acknowledgement in your paper whenever you incorporate another's words, facts, or ideas,"

APA states "Each reference cited in text must appear in the reference list, and each entry in the reference list ust be cited in text".
