In APA referencing style, in-text citations are used to show the source of your information. This in-text citation normally includes the author surname(s) and the year of publication.


Williams (2007) OR (Williams, 2007)

You do not need page numbers if you are paraphrasing generally from ideas presented in a work. However, you should include page numbers when it will help the reader find the relevant passage in a long or complex work. 

You will need to include the page numbers when using:

  • Direct quotations
  • Specific details, such as a statistic, from a work.

If no page numbers are shown, use the paragraph number. You may also use a chapter, figure, table or equation number to indicate a specific part of a source.

Please refer to the University's Referencing Guide for APA below for more information.
