Example text

9b Using signal phrases Whenever you include a direct quotation, a paraphrase, or a summary in your paper, prepare readers for it with a signal phrase. A signal phrase usually names the author of the source, gives the publication date in parentheses, and often provides some context. It is acceptable in APA style to call authors by their last name only, even on first mention. If your paper refers to two authors with the same last name, use their initials as well. See the chart on page 35 for a list of verbs commonly used in signal phrases.

Choose a verb that is appropriate for the way you are using the source. indd 35 3/29/12 1: APA 36 9c Integrating sources Integrating statistics and other facts When you are citing a statistic or another specific fact, a signal phrase is often not necessary. In most cases, readers will understand that the citation refers to the statistic or fact (not the whole paragraph). In purely financial terms, the drugs cost more than $3 a day on average (Duenwald, 2004). There is nothing wrong, however, with using a signal phrase.

However, when information has appeared in only a few sources, when it is highly specific (as with statistics or data from government agencies), or when it is controversial, you should cite the source. APA recommends an author-date style of citations. Here, briefly, is how the author-date system usually works. See sections 13–15 for a detailed discussion of variations. The source is introduced by a signal phrase that includes the last name of the author followed by the date of publication in parentheses.
