  4. 4. DIRECT QUOTATIONS  When you include direct quotations you should always have the author, year, and specific page number or paragraph number in the text. Example 1: While innovations in research have led to new definitions of the stress concept, based on its earliest foundations stress may be defined as “the nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon it” (Selye, 1976, p. 14).  Example 2: Selye (1976) suggested that stress should be described as “the nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon it” (p. 14), thereby contributing to the literature on stress. 
  5. 5.  If the quotation is 40 or more words it should be a block quotation.  Example: Jones's (1998) study found the following: Students often had difficulty using APA style, especially when it was their first time citing sources. This difficulty could be attributed to the fact that many students failed to  purchase a style manual or to ask their teacher for help. (p. 199) Note: it should be double-spaced and should not have double quotation marks.

In-text: Cox (1978) and Lazarus (1966) on the other hand, highlight the role of the individual in determining whether a situation is considered stressful and how the individual will respond to the stressor.
