When a citation reference is an integral part of a sentence, such as:

Gordon and Metric provide a wide review of the key mechanisms...

Where and how is it best to place the citation reference (in APA style)?

A) Place the citation as part of the sentence:

(Gordon & Metric, 2012) provide a wide review...

B) Place the citation right next to the authors' names (the repetition seems a bit awkward to me):

Gordon and Metric (Gordon & Metric, 2012) provide a wide review...

C) Place the citation at the end of the sentence:

Gordon and Metric provide a wide review [...] of the financial crisis (Gordon & Metric, 2012).

    Isn't it "Gordon and Metric (2012) provide a wide review of the key mechanisms..."?

In this specific case, as is pointed out by @JeffE, it should be: "Gordon and Metric (2012) provide a wide review of the key mechanisms..."
