In-text citations of magazine article summaries are normally placed at the end of the last summary sentence before the final punctuation. For example: (Sparks, 2013). Place the author’s last name followed by a comma and the year of publication in parentheses). If the summary includes directly quoted material from the author, include the page number. For example: (Sparks, 2013, p. 6).
All APA style papers include a "References" page listing all sources used in the research. A reference citation for a summary of magazine article includes: the author’s last name, a comma, and the author’s first initial, followed by a period. Next, place in parentheses the year of publication, a comma, and the month of publication, followed by a period. Write the title of the article, capitalizing only the first word. If the title contains a colon (:), capitalize the first word after the colon. Place a period after the complete title name. Italicize the magazine title and capitalize all major words. Follow the title with a comma, italicize the volume number, place the issue number in parentheses, add a comma, include the page range, and then end with a period. For example: Sparks, S. (2013, April). Gaps found in access to qualified math teachers. Education Week, 32(27), 6.
