Endnotes…

With APA, there are “in-text” citations and “post-text” references.

So, if you use information from a source like Steven Pinker’s “The Language Instinct”, using APA style, you would cite it in the text like:

    (Pinker, 1994) or Pinker (1994) or Pinker (1994, p. 75)

and reference it at the end like:

    Pinker, S. (1994). The Language Instinct. London: Penguin.

(SURNAME, YYYY) this is the default option:
… was necessary (Smith, 1988).
… was the result (Adams & Almansouri, 2013).

(ORGANISATION, YYYY) use if there are no author details:
… was necessary (UNDP, 1988).
… was the result (IMF, 2013).

(TITLE, YYYY) use if source has no author/organisation details:
… was necessary (Liquid Gold, 1988).
… was the result (Trade Imbalances, 2013).

(SURNAME, ??) if source has no date use n.d. “No Date”:
… was necessary (Jones & Marsden, n.d.).
… was the result (World bank, n.d.).
