Citing website information using APA

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

My friend D shared a helpful resource with me and I think you will appreciate it as well! Have you ever needed to include a website reference in a paper, but you did not know how to cite it? Download this file and now you will know!

The basic reference format has four positions: A, B, C, and D. For example, if the title of the webpage is missing, your solution will be to describe the document inside square brackets. In Position A, you will put the author, then in position B – the date, in position C you will describe the document [inside square brackets] and then in position D – add the URL.

I have a three-ring binder of APA help documents, and today I am adding “How to Cite Something You Found on a Website in APA Style: What to Do When Information is Missing.”
