Tips for citing an online article:

  • When author and website name are the same, omit the site name from the source element (p. 351)
  • Use n.d. (no date) when a publication date is not given.
  • When the contents of the page are designed to change over time, include a retrieval date.  (example: The US Census Bureau's Population Clock)
