Q. How do I cite a website?


To cite a website:

  • Visit the APA Help Guide for examples.
  • Click on References and In-text Citation Examples
  • Find Websites.

Students often ask about citing a website with no author.  If there is no author, start with the title of the website.

Web document: no author, with date:

Paraphrase: (“More tests needed”, 2014). Quotation: (“More tests needed”, 2014, para. 3).
