  2. 2. Web Documents Web documents have many of the same elements as print documents but there are some points you need to remember, they: • frequently move or are removed from a site. • often do NOT have: – page numbers – publication dates – authors, etc., So, it is important to state whatever information you have in your reference list and citation. New points in APA 6th Ed., are: you do NOT have to include: • retrieval dates unless the source material may change over time (e.g., wikis). • database information unless the item is an archival document (e.g., discontinued journal, monograph, or disssertation that was not formally published somewhere else). (American Psychological Association, p. 192 )
  3. 3. Citing References In Your Paper Follow the author/date format as you would for a print resource. If you are citing a direct quote and there is no page number, use the name of the chapter or heading where the quote appears. (American Psychological Association, p. 172)
  4. 4. Website As a Whole If you are referring to a website in its entirety, just refer to the name and website's homepage address in the text of your paper. There is no need for a reference list entry. • The Bank Street Bookstore is a wonderful website for finding that perfect children's book (http://www.bankstreetbooks.com/) (see http://www.apastyle.org/learn/faqs/cite-website.aspx) • President Obama uses Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/barackobama) to keep citizens up to speed on his initiatives.
