Hello incredible people. Below, you will see APA citations for articles I have to read. Journal articles end with a number and a parenthesis but only some have page numbers. Books have state names or abbreviation and the end of the citation. I would like a column to identify it I am citing a book or an article.

In the example below, I have only two books. 4 are journal articles. Can anyone help?

APA Citation
Springer, S. I., Land, C. W., Moss, L. J., & Cinotti, D. (2018). Collecting School Counseling Group Work Data: Initiating Consensual Qualitative Research through Practitioner-Researcher Partnerships. Journal for Specialists in Group Work, 43(2), 128–143.

Trede, F., & McEwen, C. (2015). Early workplace learning experiences: what are the pedagogical possibilities beyond retention and employability? Higher Education, 69(1), 19.

Vekkaila, J., Virtanen, V., Kukkola, J., Frick, L., & Pyhältö, K. (2019). How Do Doctoral Students in STEM Fields Engage in Scientific Knowledge Practices? Frontline Learning Research, 7(1), 51–64.

Hello Sandy,
Close, Trede and Vekkaila are journal articles. The rest are correct though :)

Hello Sandy,

You would know because APA states that the following 69(1), 19. is issue number, volume number and page number. Based on what you showed here, that is correct. Two are books and the rest are journals :)

so if post #5 is correct you can achieve this via Power Query (Get&Transform)

Code:
[SIZE=1]// Table1
let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table1"]}[Content],
    Last2 = Table.AddColumn(Source, "Last Characters", each Text.End([APA Citation], 2), type text),
    Isnumber = Table.AddColumn(Last2, "ISNUMBER", each Value.Is(Value.FromText([Last Characters]), type number)),
    JournalVSBook = Table.AddColumn(Isnumber, "Type", each if Text.Contains([APA Citation], "Journal") then "Journal" else if [ISNUMBER] = true then "Journal" else "Book"),
    Year = Table.AddColumn(JournalVSBook, "Text Between Delimiters", each Text.BetweenDelimiters([APA Citation], "(", ")"), type text),
    Type = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Year,{{"Text Between Delimiters", Int64.Type}}),
    Greater = Table.AddColumn(Type, ">2016", each if [Text Between Delimiters] > 2016 then "Yes" else "No"),
    Rename = Table.RenameColumns(Greater,{{"Text Between Delimiters", "Year"}, {"APA Citation", "Reference"}}),
    ROC = Table.SelectColumns(Rename,{"Type", ">2016", "Year", "Reference"})
in
    ROC[/SIZE]

in short:
select your source table (range), from Data tab choose From Table. It will open PQ Editor, replace code with copied from the post. Header should be the same as in my post. Then Close&Load and it should load result table into the sheet.

btw. this is NOT vba!

edit:
fix this record:
Yin, K. (2014). Case study research: Design and methods (5th ED.). Thousand Oaks,
CA: Sage Publications.


because there are two rows not one in your post

eg. source table should be
