Q. How do I cite a website using the APA format?

Answer

If you are citing a web page that has an author, use the following format:

Last Name of Author, F. M. (Year, Month Date). Title of page. Site name. URL (no period)

 
If you are citing a web page that is created by an organization, use the following format:
 

Group name. (Year, Month Date). Title of page. Site name if different from group name. URL (no period)

 
If there is no author for the web page, use the following format:
 

Title of page. (Year, Month Date). Site name. URL (no period)

 
If there is no date for the web page, use the following format:
 
Author or Group name. (n.d.). Title of page. Site name (if applicable). URL (no period)
 
If the page is likely to change frequently, add a retrieval date (the day you accessed the site):
 
Last Name of Author, F. M. (Year, Month Date). Title of page. Site name. Retrieved Month Date, Year, from URL
