Q. Can you give me an example of how et al is used?
The phrase et al. is used in APA format to abbreviate a long list of authors/editors for an in-text citation.
If a book or article has six or more authors, cite it using this format:
(First Author et al., date).
(Barrett et al., 2018).
See the APA Help guide for more examples.
