QUOTATION and CITATION according to APA STYLE
CITATION IN THE TEXT
To show the source of the citation which is made in a paragraph, the surname(s) of the author(s), publication date, and the page number of the quoted material are stated in parenthesis at the end of the sentence or paragraph. This technique may vary with regard to sources.
Sources with one author
In the text, after the quoted material, the surname of the author, publication date, and page number are given in a parenthesis. All the items are separated by commas in the parenthesis.
Example: (Erhan, 2001, p.79)
If the authors surname is inserted in the text, reference citation is written as follows:
Example: Erhan (2001, p.79)
Sources with two or more authors
While citing a source with two authors, the surnames of both authors are provided:
Example: (Tamer and Gül, 2013, p. 86)
The Sources of the Same Author published at the same year
* References by the same author(s) with the same publication date are arranged alphabetically by the title that follows the publication date:
Example : (Keyman, 2000a); (Keyman, 2000b)
The Source with Unknown Writer
* If there is no author, the title moves to the author position, and the entry is alphabetized by the first significant word of the title. While citing such a source the title of the book is italicized and publication date is also provided.
Example: (Educational Measurement Handbook, 1999)
Two or More Sources
Works by different authors are arranged alphabetically by the first initial of their surnames:
Example: (Brown and Ainley, 1989; Gümüş, 1988).
Interviews should be specified throughout the text, but it should not be inserted in the reference list.
Example: (Oral Sander, Personal interview, December 1990).
Quoting or Citing Sources: Citation of a work discussed in a secondary source
In articles, it is important to reach the primary sources; however, if the primary source can not be obtained for some difficulties, the secondary source is stated in the citation
Example: (cited in Gürbilek, 2004, p. 115); (cited by Johnson, 2007b, pp. 37-38).
The reference of primary source is not mentioned in the text.
All the cited sources throughout the text should also be listed alphabetically in the reference list which is provided at the end of each study. The sources which are not cited in the text are not included in the reference list. In the references part, each entry usually starts with the surname of the authors. References are listed in alphabetical order.
The entries for books are designed as follows:
Surname of the author, the initial letter of the author’s first name(s), publication date, the title of the book (italic, only the initial of the first word is capitalized except the proper nouns), and publication place.

Articles published in journals are put in the reference list differently because some additional information such as the title of the journal and volume number are given in the reference entries. Title of the journal and volume number are written in italic forms before the page numbers and they are separated by commas in the entry.
