Q. When using APA format do I punctuate after the citation?

Answer

A period is the proper punctuation at the end of each citation on the References page according to the Sample Paper found on the APA Help guide.

For in-text citations, place a period after the parentheses if the citation is at the end of a sentence.

Example:

Baker College of Muskegon is located at 1903 Marquette Avenue (Jewell, 2015).
