Parenthetical (In-Text) Citations
A parenthetical (in-text) citation is when you place the source in parenthesis ( ) within the sentence usually just before the period instead of waiting until the end of the paper. It helps the reader to know exactly what sentences and paragraphs are taken from particular sources.
Place the authorâ€™s last name and the sourceâ€™s date of publication in parentheses immediately after the end of the cited material. If it is a direct quote, include the page number as well. For example: â€œPsychology is defined as the science of behavior and mental processesâ€ (Coon et al., 2012, p. 12).
