Q. How do I reference an article on a website?



Author(s) last name, Initials. (Year.). Title of webpage. Title of Publication/Website in Mixed Case and Italics. Retrieved from http://www.webpage.com 


Palmater, P. (2017, August 24). Social conflict is inevitable in decolonization battle. Canadian Dimension, 51(3). Retrieved from https://canadiandimension.com/articles/view/social-conflict-is-inevitable-in-decolonization-battle 

In-text citation

(Author last name, year, paragraph number) 


(Palmater, 2017, para. 4) 


  • If available, include the month and day in brackets after the year (Year, Month Day)

  • If there is a volume and/or issue number, include it after the publication name 

  • If the website has the words “magazine," "journal," or “news,” it means it is a publication that publishes articles. Find the name of the publication by going to the “About” or “Contact Us” page and include that information in italics after the title of the article. 

  • Count the paragraphs on the page and use the abbreviation para. or use a heading on the page for the in-text citation 

  • For more help citing and referencing articles, go to the library's APA guide here
