How Do You Cite a Website in a Text?
When writing a research paper, you must accumulate sources to provide factual support for your information. To accurately reference the research and writings of others, you should cite them within your text. Citing websites within a text follows the same rules as citing printed works, according to standards set by the Modern Language Association (MLA).
1 Find the author of the information online. If citing an article that has an author’s name, you will use the author rather than the website as part of your citation. If there is no author listed, you will need to include the website’s name.
2 Write the author’s name before or after the citation within the text. For example, “According to Harvey Wise, sea turtles are becoming increasingly endangered.” You may also cite the reference using the author’s last name.
3 Include the actual website for those online references that fail to include an author’s name. For example, if citing whitehouse.gov as a reference, you could cite the reference like this: Barack Obama become president of the United States in 2009 (White House).
4 Include your online reference in your works cited page. This is especially important because the website’s full address (e.g., whitehouse.gov) is not used within the in-text citation.
How to Make a Citation for a Website
Many style guides for citations exist, but most writers of academic papers use either “MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers” or “Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association” as a guide to formatting citations. Unless otherwise directed by your professor or research advisor, follow MLA style for liberal arts and humanities papers or APA style for social science papers. Both the MLA and APA style manuals offer guidance for creating citations to web publications and other electronic sources.
Website Citation: MLA Style
1 Collect the information you need to cite the website in MLA style. Record the name of the website author, the website title, the website version number or date, the name of the website publisher, the website publication date, the date you accessed the website and the website URL. You may not find all of this information for each website and you can omit any elements that are not available.
2 Type in the name of the author, editor or compiler, followed by a period. Format it with the author’s last name followed by a comma and then the first and middle names. Example: “Jones, David V.”
3 Type in the name of the website, followed by a period. Format the website name in italics.
4 Type in the version number of the website, if available, followed by a period.
5 Type in the name of the website publisher, followed by a comma, and then the publication date followed by a period. If no publisher is listed for the website, enter “n.p.” and if no date is available enter “n.d.”
6 Type in the publication medium (“Web”) followed by a period.
7 Type in the date you accessed the website.
8 Type in the URL for the website, if desired. Surround the URL with angle brackets, followed by a period. Including the URL is optional in MLA style.
9 Proofread your finished citation. It should look similar to this example: “National Institutes of Health. Health Information. U.S. Department of Heath & Human Services, 23 November 2009. Web. 6 April 2010. < http://health.nih.gov/ >. ”
Website Citation: APA Style
10 Collect the information you need to cite the website in APA style. Record the name of the website author, the website publication date, the website title and the website URL.
11 Type in the name of the author. Format personal names with the author’s last name followed by a comma and then the first and middle names.
12 Type in the website publication date, surrounded by parentheses. Format the date with the year first, followed by a comma and then the month and day. If no date is available, type “n.d.” in the parentheses.
13 Type in the website name. Format the website name in italics.
14 Type in “Retrieved from” followed by the website URL.
15 Proofread your finished citation. It should look similar to this example: “National Institutes of Health (2009, November 23). Health Information. Retrieved from http://health.nih.gov/.
Tips & Warnings
Write the citation for each website you access while you are researching your paper. If you wait until you are finished writing your paper, you may forget to include some sites or not even be able to find them again.
If you fail to cite your sources in an academic paper, your professor will probably give you a lower grade.
