Citing Reliable Websites

Webpage/Website Articles General Structure:

Author, F.M. (Year, Month Date of publication). Title of webpage/article. Retrieved from URL

Note: Only include the retrieval date if the content is likely to change over time (such as wikis). If necessary, include the retrieval month date, year, (in that order) between “Retrieved” and “from URL” in the last segment of the citation.

Note: When a website does not have a webpage/article title, replace it in the citation with the website title.

 

Citing a general webpage/website article without an author

Structure:

Title of webpage/article. (Year, Month Date of publication). Retrieved from URL

Example: 

Original source: https://www.statisticssolutions.com/manova-analysis-paired-sample-t-test/

APA Citation: Paired sample t-test. (n.d.). Retrieved from https://www.statisticssolutions.com

Note: If the source you are citing is a standalone source, meaning an entire book, television series, or film, the title of such sources should be in italics. If, however, you are citing a piece of a larger source, i.e. a journal article, a webpage on a website, or an episode of a show, the title should be in sentence case and not in italics.

  • Q: This page describes citing specific webpages and website articles. Can I cite an entire website?
  • A: According to the APA manual (6th edition), it is not necessary to cite a website in its entirety in a reference list. Instead, include a reference in the body of your paper.
