Quick Answers—References
Websites
For a passing reference to a website in text, the URL is sufficient; no reference list entry is needed. Gussie Fink-Nottle has set up a discussion forum for newt fanciers (http://gfnnfg.livejournal.com/). However, when you are citing a particular document or piece of information from a website, include both a reference list entry and an in-text citation. The key to creating the reference list entry is to determine the type of content on the web page. Basically, provide the following four pieces of information: Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format description]. Retrieved from http://xxxxxxxxx The in-text citation includes the author and date (Author, date), as with any other APA Style citation.

In-Text Citations
In-text citations consist of the surname(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication. If there is no author, use the title (or a short form of the title, if it is lengthy) and the year. Titles that are italicized in the reference list are italicized in text; titles that are not italicized in the reference list appear in quotation marks.

If there is no date, use “n.d.” (without quotation marks) instead. Back to top of page (#top)
