APA Website Citation
Web sites do not include subscription databases
Whenever you quote, paraphrase, or summarize another author’s findings or ideas, you need to attribute that information to the author it came from. This includes both print and non-print materials.
Attributing information to another author is done by what is called citing or referencing that author. Depending on the style your professor asks you to use, this may be accomplished by using either in-text citations or footnotes. You will also be expected to include a list of full citations that describe each work and enable your reader to locate the item. This list may be referred to as a bibliography, list of works cited, or list of references depending on the style. For examples of different citation styles, see the resources listed on the individual tabs of this guide.
You do not need to cite things which are common knowledge (“there are seven days in a week” or “the sky is blue”) or your own opinion, but you DO need to provide citations for the facts and opinions you borrow from others.
