How do I reference multiple pages from one website?
As each webpage has a unique URL, create a separate reference list entry for each individual page. Alphabetise according to page title. If the pages have the same date, distinguish by adding lowercase letters after the date—e.g., (2014a) or (n.d.-a).
Reference list entries
Fieldays. (n.d.-a). Business centre. www.fieldays.co.nz/businesscentre
Fieldays. (n.d.-b). Media centre: Exhibition areas. www.fieldays.co.nz/exhibitionareas
Fieldays. (n.d.-c). Visitor centre: Event information. www.fieldays.co.nz/eventinformation
How can I reference a specific section of a webpage?
When citing a web page you should, where practicable, use section headings and/or paragraph numbers to direct the reader to the specific section of the page from which you took information.
Number the paragraphs from under that particular heading, don't count from the top of the webpage.
The heading is added to the in-text citation after the year and with the word section after it. See the example below.
If each page you use has a separate URL, you need to reference them separately. In text, list the author (often corporate), date and the section heading and/or paragraph.
Reference list entry
Department of Conservation. (n.d.). Podocarp-hardwood forests. https://www.doc.govt.nz/nature/native-plants/podocarp-hardwood-forests/
Climate is a significant factor in influencing the type of forest that gets established (Department of Conservation, n.d., Podocarp facts section, para. 2).
How do I reference a whole website?
When referring to the entirety of a website generally, simply include the URL in your discussion. No reference list entry is necessary. For example:
What is a DOI?
A Digital Object Identifier, or DOI, is a unique code/series of numbers used to identify an electronic resource and provide a reliable link to its location online. A DOI looks similar to a URL but unlike URLs, which can change or stop working entirely, a DOI is a permanent link to a particular resource.
DOIs on Onesearch may look like this:
However, DOIs should only be presented as follows:
Do this for all DOIs, including ones that look like https://dx.doi.org/123.456.789 or DOI: 123.456.789.
