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


For discussion board posts that require citations:

  • Cite your textbook information in-text in parentheses.
  • 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.
