Citing Web Resources
Identify the color-coded elements to cite web resources on your Reference List:
If no date is specified, put (n.d.) in the year field.
Do not put a period after the URL.
Citations in your paper should be formatted in a black or grayscale font.
If you refer to an entire website, but not a specific document on that site, you only need to include an in-text citation and omit it from the reference list.
Example: Kidspsych is a wonderful interactive website for children (http://www.kidspsych.org).
