APA 7 Style Guide
Webpage – APA Reference List
- Include the site name.
- Do not include site name if same as author.
- Webpage title is not italicized.
- Use when citing a non-periodical web article from a website. Check that your document does not fall under any of the other categories. A non-periodical manuscript, like a technical or research report, would be Report; a Wikipedia article would be Online Encyclopedia.
- When citing an entire website, it is sufficient to give the address of the site in just the text of your paper. You do not need to include it in your bibliography.
- When there is no author for a web page, the title moves to the beginning of the reference entry
- Capitalization: The Webpage title is in sentence case – Only the first word and proper nouns in the title are capitalized. Always capitalize the first word, the first word after a colon or a dash..
- When an Internet document is more than one Web page, provide a URL that links to the home page or entry page for the document.
- When the same organization is listed as the author and the site name, the site name is omitted.
- When citing sources that you find on the Internet you only need to include a retrieval date if the information you viewed is likely to change over time. If you reference an article from Wikipedia, for example, you would want to include a retrieval date because information in a wiki can be subject to a lot of change.
