How do you do an in text citation for a biography?

1. Give the first name and last name of the biographer, the title of the biography in italics, the place of publication and publisher separated by a colon and the year of publication (all contained in parentheses) and the page number you are taking your information from to complete your footnote.

Can I cite in my introduction?

Answer. Whenever you use information from a source, you must cite it, even if the citation will occur in the introduction of your paper. For more information on in-text citations, visit the In-Text Citations page of the APA Guide.

What is a full citation?

Full citations provide all of the elements necessary for the reader to find the exact same source used by the writer. Full citations should be provided for all the sources used or consulted in your research project.

Where are citations usually found?

Most citation information will appear on the first page of the article; however, the location of that information will vary from journal to journal. You can find the placement of the journal name, page number, publication date, and volume and issue number located on the top or bottom of the article’s page.
