APA Referencing Guide 7th Edition: Webpage with no author

A guide to help users create citations using APA (American Psychological Association) style, 7th edition

Webpage with no author

Helpful Tips

  • 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 a news source (e.g., RTE, BBC, Irish Times) or a site that may experience continuous updates, you would then need to include a retrieval date.
  • New in 7th edition: You must include the site name in your citation, unless the site name is the same as the corporate author. For example, a citation of a CDC report would not include the site name.
