APA Referencing

Welcome to this Refresher on APA Referencing. 

Use these pages to practice referencing books, ebooks, journal articles and websites in the APA style.

Websites

A reference is made of four parts:

  • Who? Author's name or name of the organisation / website.
  • When? Year of publication (if there is no date, put n.d.).
  • What? Title of the webpage. 
  • Where? Web address.

For websites with a named author:

Author(s). (Year). Title. Retrieved from: web address.

 

For websites without a named author:

Name of the organisation / website. (Year). Title. Retrieved from: web address.
