Tips for citing webpages (from page 350, APA 7th edition):
- Use the general "website" template to set up a citation if your reference doesn't seem to fit any other electronic category and does not have a "parent" organization such as a journal publisher.
- If you have multiple citations from one website, but are viewing different pages on the website, make a reference for each page you are citing.
- If you are just mentioning a website in general, but not specifically sharing information from the website, simply add the name of the website in the text and include the URL in parenthesis.
- If you are having trouble locating the author of the website, look in the "about" or "acknowledgement" page/section to see if it is mentioned there.
- You only need a retrieval date in the reference if the content is designed to change over time, such as a Wikipedia article, which does not keep or archive previous versions of a webpage.
- DOI links & website links can now be live or hyperlinked on any assignment that is turned in electronically or meant to be read online.
