- Look for an author, often at the end of the article: if there is one listed, you must include that information.
- The title of the page you are citing goes in quotation marks.
- The name of the web site is in italics.
- Include the place of publication, publisher, and date if they are given. This information is often found at the bottom of the home page or on a "contact us" page.
- Include the date you viewed the material and the full URL.
- If you don't find an author, an "about us" page, the name of a reputable organization, or publication information, you may want to reconsider whether this is valid material for an academic paper.
