Hi Irdis,

The answer to your question is quite simple,

You are missing \setuppublications

Here the MWE:
setuppublications[alternative=apa]

\starttext
\startpublication[k=haq,
                 t=book,
                 a=Haq,
                 y=1994,
                 s=Haq94]
\author[]{Syed Nomanul}[S.]{}{Haq}
\title{Names, Natures, and Things}
\pubname{Kluwer}
\city{Dordrecht}
\pubyear{1994}
\stoppublication


this is a cite from \cite[haq]
\stoptext

regards
	Keith.
