Q. How do I cite and reference a webpage?

Answer

For webpages with an individual author:

Reference:

Author(s) last name, Initial. (Year, Month Day). Title of webpage in italics and sentence case. Title of website. http://www.url...

Example

Duke, I. (2019, October 21). October 21, 2019 banned and restricted announcement. Magic: the Gathering. https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/october-21-2019-banned-and-restricted-announcement

In-text citation:

(Last name, year, para. #)

Example

(Duke, 2019, para. 4)

For webpages with a group author:

Reference:

Group Author Name (Year, Month Day). Title of webpage in italics and sentence case. http://www.url...

Example

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2018, July 31). Influenza prevention: Information for travellers. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/school-business/travelersfacts.htm

In-text citation:

(Author, Year, para. #)

(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018, para. 4)

Tips:

  • If there is no date of publication on the webpage you are referencing, replace the date with (n.d.)
  • If no authors are named on a webpage, use the title of the website as the group author name.
