APA6 Man-Class, Citation with Biblatex, how do I get “Text (e.g., Source1 and Source2)”?

I have a question concerning the use of the APA6 Man-Class, combined with Biblatex. Normally, I use \parencite or \textcite to cite. But now I need something like this:

"Text (e.g., Author1,Year1 and Author2,Year2)" or this: "Text (Text, Author,Year)"

When I try to do the second one with \parencite, it looks like this: "Text (Text, (Author,Year))" And with \textcite like this: "Text (Text, Author (Year))"

Can anybody help me with this?

• You can try and use normal \cite. But maybe there is something better. – moewe Aug 17 '16 at 7:27
• BTW: Can we expect you to use biblatex-apa (i.e. style=apa as biblatex option)? – moewe Aug 17 '16 at 7:48

biblatex-apa has two citation commands without brackets: \cite and \nptextcite, the difference being that the latter has an "&" instead of an "and" between the last two authors.

Text (e.g., Author1, Year1 and Author2, Year2)

you could use

Text \parencites[e.g.,][]{sigfridsson}[and][]{cicero}


or

Text (e.g., \nptextcite{sigfridsson} and \nptextcite{cicero})


While for the second case

Text (Text, Author,Year)

you can use

Text \parencite[Text,][]{sigfridsson}


But if the "Text" in the parentheses is very long, you might want to use

Text (Text, \nptextcite{sigfridsson})

• Thank you so much for your answer! This was exactyl what I was looking for :) – Anne B Aug 17 '16 at 13:25
