According to APA-style rules, a quoting page number should always appear after the quote itself.

using in text citations, this would look like:

Palladino and Wade’s (2010) results indicate that “a flexible mind is a healthy mind” (p. 147).

Im having trouble to reproduce this using biblatex and \textcite. Using \autocite still gives me the year and page, not only the page.



  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Title},
  publisher = {Publisher},


\textcite[11]{key} mentioned this as "\textelp{} foo bar.".\\
\textcite{key} mentioned this as "\textelp{} foo bar."\autocite*[11]{key}.



\pnotecite should help you here. Like \notecite it only prints the optional pre- and postnote arguments and no real citation. But as the name suggests, it also adds parentheses around the output.


\textcite[11]{sigfridsson} mentioned this as \enquote{\textelp{} foo bar}.

\textcite{sigfridsson} mentioned this as \enquote{\textelp{} foo bar} \pnotecite[11]{sigfridsson}.


If you want full APA style, you may want to consider using biblatex-apa's style=apa instead of style=authoryear-comp.
