How to Cite a Website in APA
Citing a general website article with an author
Note: Many sources have APA citation formats for their online versions (e.g., online newspapers, dictionaries and encyclopedias). Check out our other guides or the APA Publication Manual (6th ed.) first to see if there is a citation for a specific source type in an online format.
Author, F.M. (Year, Month Date of publication). Article title. Retrieved from URL
Note: Only include the retrieval date if the content is likely to change over time (such as wikis). If necessary, include the retrieval month date, year, (in that order) between “Retrieved” and “from URL” in the last segment of the citation.
Note: When a website does not have an article title, replace it in the citation with the website title.
