APA 7th Edition Referencing Guide1

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

Referencing online maps (e.g., Google maps)

When referencing a map from Google maps, your reference list entry should include a retrieval date as the details of the map are likely to change. Use (n.d.). as these maps are 'dynamically generated' and don't have a specific publication date.

Author. (n.d.). [Description of map]. Retrieval date and URL

URLs must be written exactly as they are displayed in your Internet browser (https://...). If Word autoformats the URL to the main words of the webpage title, you must change it. See here for how to do this.
