  85. Dear Style Expert, I found a very useful website and cited a lot of information from it in my paper. But how do I write an in-text citation for content I found on a website? Do I just put the URL in the sentence where I cite the information? Thanks, Wallace Dear Wallace, This is a tricky question, but we can help! The short answer is that in most cases no, you do not put the URL in the text of the paper. In fact, the only time you would put a URL in the text would be to simply. Luckily, writing the in-text citation for a website or webpage is easy: Simply include the author and year of publication. The URL goes in the corresponding reference list entry and yes, you can. Website Example In-text citation: The American Nurses Association 2006 issued a position statement insisting that pharmaceutical companies immediately cease using thimerosal as a vaccine preservative. Reference list: American Nurses Association. Retrieved from Note that the title of the website or webpage should be italicized in the reference list if the work on the page stands alone but not italicized if it is part of a greater whole if this is ambiguous on the source, just choose what you think makes the most sense for the situation. In deciding how to categorize material on a website for a reference, it may be helpful to consider whether what is on the website is similar to an —for example, this reference is a position statement, which is similar to a press release, white paper, or report; hence the italic title. To clarify the document type, you can also specify the format in brackets after the title. Determining Website Authors It can be confusing to determine who the author of a website or webpage is. For example, the author of the position statement cited above is the American Nurses Association. If the website or webpage truly does not have an author, substitute the title of the page for the author in the in-text citation and reference list entry see this post on for examples of how to do this. Determining Website Dates A second source of confusion is that many websites or webpages do not include publication dates. If no date of publication is provided, use the letters n. The should not be used as the publication date for particular content on that site. If multiple dates are provided, use the most recent date on which the content was changed. For example, if the site says the content was first published in 2010 and last updated on August 6, 2016, then use the date 2016 in the in-text citation and reference list. However, if the site says it was first published in 2010 and last reviewed in July 2016, then use the date 2010 because a review does not imply that any information was changed. Multiple Website Citations If you use information from multiple pages on a website, create a separate reference list entry for each page, with in-text citations that correspond to the appropriate reference list entry. It is common for writers to have multiple entries with the , so to differentiate these entries, use a letter after the year e. Put references with no date before references with dates, and put in-press references last. Multiple reference list entries: American Nurses Association. Retrieved from American Nurses Association. Retrieved from American Nurses Association. Retrieved from American Nurses Association. Academic progression to meet the needs of the registered nurse, the health care consumer, and the U.

Leave a comment below. And there are no limits on the age of sources. Rather, APA recommends that sources be reliable, primary accounts that represent the most up-to-date information wherever possible. Reliable Sources A reliable source is one you can trust. Two indicators of reliability are the expertise of the author and the vetting standards of the place of publication. For example, an article written by a researcher and published in a peer-reviewed journal is likely to contain reliable information and thus would make a good source. On the other hand, a random website written by an unknown person, for example, is less likely to be reliable, and thus we would not recommend you cite this source unless you have a good reason e. However, the mere fact that information is published online is not reason to dismiss it as unreliable. Many scientific, medical, and governmental organizations—such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC , National Institutes of Health, U. Census Bureau, and even the APA—publish reliable information on their websites and social media sites. Scientists and research organizations might publish blogs or that are worth citing. Evaluate each source on its own merits for reliability when determining whether to cite it in a paper. Primary Sources A primary source presents information gathered firsthand, such as the results of an experiment or data from a survey. Secondary sources present information secondhand—an example would be a textbook summary of a topic or a article. APA recommends citing primary sources whenever possible, because this allows you to verify the accuracy and completeness of the information yourself rather than rely on someone else to do this for you. Secondary sources can be reliable, but it is a best practice of scholarly writing to investigate for yourself if you can. See and for more information on primary and secondary sources. Up-to-Date Sources APA recommends that you use the most up-to-date research you can find on your topic. However, the meaning of up-to-date will vary depending on the field. Some fields develop faster than others, and even within a field, some information will remain relevant for a long time, whereas other information will become outdated. For example, foundational works may be quite old but still worth citing when you are establishing the context for your own work. There is no year-related cutoff where sources must be published within the past x number of years to be used in a paper. Each source must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine whether the information in it is timely and relevant.
