Q. How do I cite authors using APA style?
Authors' names in APA are always in the first position (the first thing) in your citation and should always be displayed last name, first initial. Here's an example:
Wooldridge, M.B., & Shapka, J. (2012). Playing with technology: Mother-toddler interaction scores lower during play with electronic toys. Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, 33(5), 211-218. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.appdev.2012.05.005
