Q. How do I cite a video, both in text and for the reference page? For the link, all I am given is the name of the video.


When you cite a movie that you are retrieving from a website, you should use the citation format for a website rather than the one for a motion picture. If you have no author for the website, use the following formats:

  • For the References page:

            Title. (Date or n.d. for No date). Retrieved from the http://www...

  • For the in-text citation:

            (Title, Date).

For more guidance on APA style, visit the APA Help guide.
