A Wintec Library guide to referencing in APA 7th edition style

Referencing a webpage with an individual author

When referencing a webpage, use the most specific date possible (the full date if known). Italicise the title of the individual webpage and, if the webpage has an individual (rather than corporate/group) author, include the name of the website (not in italics) before the URL.

Author, A. or Corporate/Group Author. (Date). Title of webpage in italic sentence case. Name of website. URL
