APA Referencing: Websites


This category includes information about online references.

The template for references from the Internet only includes four pieces of information (author, date, title, and source).

The format description in brackets below is only used when the format is something out of the ordinary, such as a blog post, otherwise it's not necessary.

  • When citing electronic material, include as many of the details as possible (as per example below). 
  • Where there is no author, use the title in place of the author’s name in-text and in the reference list entry.
  • If there is no date on the website use the term n.d. (no date) in both the in-text citation and reference list.
Format for a reference list:-
Author, Initial. (Year). Title of document. [Format description]. Retrieved from http://URL
