APA is the citation format used within psychology, social sciences, education and business arenas. The American Psychological Association created the system along with specific guidelines on how you properly credit different types of sources or mediums. For example, you reference printed journals and books differently you cite information and documents accessed on the web.
Open the word program you’re using and select the Times New Roman font, size 12. Type “References" (do not use parenthesis) on the first line and center it. Set the document to double-space as APA rules dictate you double-space.
Go online to the web source that you wish to reference and identify the category of the web source. Your source may include an online scholarly journal article, online periodical or database article, electronic book, online encyclopedia or dictionary, nonperiodical web document, web page, blog, online lecture notes, report or presentation slide.
Visit the Long Island University’s APA Citation Style web page and scroll down to where it says “Websites.” Follow the citation example that’s illustrated within that category “Page With a No Author.”
Type the title of the site in italics, followed by a period.
Enter the date that is on the website in parenthesis, followed by a period.
Type in the word “Retrieved” followed by the date that you accessed the website, then add a comma and the word “from.” Next, type the name of the website, followed by a colon and the complete URL of the website.
