Q. If I'm using one source multiple times throughout a paper, do I need to include an in-text citation each time I draw information from it?


Yes, you do. You can start your paragraph by introducing the author's name and then refer back to him or her throughout the paragraph, but you need to include a parenthetical citation at least once in each paragraph in which you use the source.

For more information about APA citation, visit the library's APA Help page.
