For example, I want to describe a paper with a direct quote from it. Would this be OK:

Pieters and Wedel (2007) “revealed goal control of attention even during a few seconds of self-paced ad exposure with an eye-tracking experiment” (Pieters & Wedel, 2007, p 224)

I use APA 6th edition as the guideline.

That is incorrect according to the APA Style Blog. The correct way would be

Pieters and Wedel (2007) “revealed goal control of attention even during a few seconds of self-paced ad exposure with an eye-tracking experiment” (p. 224)

NB: there is a period after the p.
