When doing an in-text citation for a reference work we recommend using the components that you lead with in the APA reference. Since it is a reference work where you would not list an author, given the nature of the Oxford Online Dictionary, you would lead your reference list entry with Money, followed by the date. Since in-text citations are intended to let your reader connect the ideas and sources you are building upon to the information listed in the reference list the dictionary entry and the date are what you should use in-text. The APA Manual also notes that you should use double quotes around in-text citations when not using an author name (p. 176). So you might have an in-text citation that reads as ("Money," 2019).


An example of an in-text citation is: (Money, 2019)

Reference list example:

Money. (2019). In Oxford Online Dictionary. Retrieved from
