Most of my life I've used the MLA citation format when writing any sort of essays or research papers about difference topics. However recently I've been exploring different types of citation formats, such as the APA and Chicago but I've run into a bit of a snafu. Let's say that I found the following few lines on a website:
"... 89.7% of cat lovers aren't inherently evil people just because of their preference towards cats rather than dogs."
Normally I would have a footnote in my essay, with the citation, where I reference the 89.7%. At the end of my paper in Bibliography section, I'd re-write the citation. However how could one do that in the APA format? Let's assume that the "89.%" came from the BBC and was written by B. Shaw in 2018. Could I write:
According to B. Shaw (BBC, 2018) 89.7% of people who like cats don't have anything against dogs.
I'd then follow this up with the proper citation in the references section.
