The specific answer to your question will depend on the type of citation style you are using. Two common citation styles are APA and MLA.

Typically, a parenthetical footnote is called an in-text citation in both of these styles.

Please visit the links above to see guides that provide the generic format and examples for citing sources in MLA and APA style. Use the tabs across the top of each guide to see the format for in-text citations, as well as citing various types of sources (e.g., books, journal articles).
