How to Cite

APA Style

For citation purposes, when a web page has no author, the title of the web page you are citing is listed first in the citation. The date on which the quoted page was last revised follows in parenthesis, followed by the date the material was retrieved by you, followed by the URL (web address) of the page cited. The date on which the quoted page was last revised appears at the bottom right corner of each page. Such usage is consistent with the practice of the American Psychological Association and national library groups.

Example:
Rosa Parks Biography — Academy of Achievement. (February 26, 2010). Retrieved June 3, 2014, from http://www.achievement.org/autodoc/page/par0bio-1

When referencing your citation in the text of your paper, list the title of the reference item you are citing in double quotation marks and the year the quoted page was last revised.

Example:
(“Rosa Parks Biography — Academy of Achievement,” 2010).

Chicago Style
