What do we need from you?

For the APA Citation Checker to do its job, citations in your paper should roughly follow APA Style guidelines, meaning:

In-text citations follow the author-date format: (Smith, 2020) or Smith (2020).
The reference list gives information about the author(s), publication date, and title of each source.

If your citations do not meet these requirements, we recommend using Scribbr’s Citation Editing Service or free APA Citation Generator instead.
