Citations in the text of your paper Citations in the text of your paper should include the author’s last name(s),
the year of publication, and be enclosed in parentheses (Wolf & Masters, 2019).
When you are including a direct quote from a source work, include a specific page reference (Anderson, 2020, p. 223).
If the author(s) names are mentioned in the same sentence, include only the year of publication. If the year of publication is mentioned in the text, include only the author’s name in the cite.
For works by two authors, always include both author names:

When a work has 3 or more authors, use “et al.”:

marks for short work titles, and italicize the titles of reports, books,
and other significant works:
