APA 6th Edition

If a work has two authors, insert an ampersand (&) between the authors’ names in the citation. Cite both authors every time the resource is referenced (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 175). For example, (Green & Doble, 1988, p. 34).

For other information regarding citing works by multiple authors, please see "How do I cite a resource by three to five authors in APA Style?" and "How do I cite a resource with six or more authors in APA Style?".

If a work has two authors, insert an ampersand (&) between the authors’ names in the parenthetical citation, and spell out “and” in the running text to format a narrative citation. Cite both authors every time the resource is referenced (American Psychological Association, 2020, p.266). For example:

  • Parenthetical citation: (Kouzes & Posner, 2017)
  • Narrative citation: Kouzes and Posner (2017)
