APA Style v. 6: A. Basic Web Page

Basic Web Page (pp. 187-192)

Helpful Tip
  • When citing sources that you find on the Internet you only need to include a retrieval date if the information you viewed is likely to change over time (p. 192).  If you reference an article from Wikipedia, for example, you would want to include a retrieval date because information in a wiki can be subject to a lot of change.
