"Et al." can be used in an in-text citation to a work by three to five authors after the first full citation (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 175), and in all citations and the reference to a work by six or more authors (p. 175). For a detailed explanation, please see "The Proper Use of Et Al. in APA Style" from the APA Style Blog.
