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


A period is the proper punctuation at the end of each citation on the References page.

  • See examples on 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.
