Q. When citing something referenced from my textbook in an online discussion post, do I also put sources cited at the end of my discussion posting?


For discussion board posts that require citations, you will want to cite your textbook information in-text and then, at the end of the post, give a reference citation.

To see examples of proper in-text and reference citations for a book, visit References & In-text Citation Examples on the APA Help guide. 

To see what in-text and reference citation should look like, see the Sample Paper on APA Help homepage in APA Tools box.
