How to Cite Web Site APA No Author No Date No Page Number

963 ratings | 318310 views
There are other videos on citing Web sites in APA in general and even some videos on how to handle the situation of pages with no author. However, this video does a live walk through and quickly explains everything you need to know. I also include some tips on how to quickly get the information from the website into your document. I've watched the other videos out there and have improved on them in several ways in this video. I hope you find this information helpful and if you'd like more examples and explanations you can find them at http://www.seriousscholar.com/how-to-cite-a-web-page-with-no-date-no-author-no-page-number/ Thanks for stopping by and good luck formatting your APA references and citations! Oh and if you have any questions about anything that I didn't cover in the video or isn't clear, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you. It's better to leave your comment on seriousscholar.com because I'm on there more frequently than I am here. Thanks! :)

Awesome tutorial. I have had a lot of problems with my formatting. A quick tip for removing the hyperlink is to right-click the mouse on the hyperlink and "Remove Hyperlink" from the options. This will keep the link but not keep it as a hyperlink. Thanks Rocky Citro!

That's all good, but how do you cite it in-text? If your title is long, do you use a shortened version of the title? Or, the name of the website publisher?

Thankyou Sir

Why did you write "no date" when it said 2010 at the bottom of the page?
Reuben Mistas (1 year ago)
Sun Tzu he probably wrote it for educational purposes only, obviously. lol

Mike Rifinski (2 years ago)
Clear guidelines. Thank you. Are they still up to date? Also what do you do if you reference a website of a school? Would the title still be the title of the page and not the name of the school?

I have been doing my citations and  my references so wrong. I was always getting them wrong. My grade would be 10 points off and could not figure out how to correct them. This video helped me to know what to fix. Thanks so much.

Thank you for sharing this. I recently wrote a paper that used only Internet based citations. I misunderstood the format in which he desired my citations, so I am using the information you posted to correct these mistakes. Thanks again!

Helpful.  Passing it on to my students. I would add that students should use a lot of critical common sense about using a source at all, when so little can be determined about it (who, when, nature of authority, etc.).  Even when you can assume a reputable organizational site has anonymous staff writers, it should at least be making info about dates available.

Or group would have found it more helpful if you could have followed one complete process instead of changing up in the middle of your instruction to show another way to complete the task.

Thanks for this video, it makes everything easier.  Do a tutorial for open office, it's free and us poor kids can't afford microsoft's over $9000 programs.

im getting poor grades because of this f**** citation, I really hate it
Rocky Citro (5 years ago)
I don't want to say "never" without reviewing APA's regs. Usually it's the title of the web page (which is usually different from the title of the entire site) that is italicized. I'll be making some newer videos this summer based on APA's electronic references supplement so stay tuned!
Rocky Citro (5 years ago)
Thanks glad it was helpful!
Natasha Blake (5 years ago)
Thank you so much! This video cleared everything up for me. Also, you have a nice voice :)
Jovixgal (5 years ago)
Referencing bites, so thank you for this vid.
Rocky Citro (5 years ago)
Glad it helped! Just to clarify, sometimes we can use the organization as the author. I should give a clearer example of that and will post it when it's ready. :)
Rocky Citro (5 years ago)
Good question William. In U.S. English, the comma goes inside the quotation mark. In British English, the comma is often set outside the closing quotation mark. For an example of this particular situation, see section 6.15 in the 6th edition of the APA manual). Also see section 4.03 for comma usage. Hope that helps!
Rocky Citro (5 years ago)
You're welcome!

6:54, ("Ecuador," ... i just want to make sure if that comma was an error? should it be after the apostrophe?
Cupcake Swag (5 years ago)
So the title of the webpage is never italicize ? Only the organization name ?
sugar pokey (6 years ago)
Thank god for this! My research presentation required me to use .org, .edu, and .gov sites and none of them had authors or dates! Especially that damn CDC site! I'm so happy you made this! Thank you!
Rocky Citro (6 years ago)
You're very welcome! :)
