HOW TO CITE A WEB PAGE WITH NO AUTHOR(S) AND NO DATE

Name of Organization or Group. (n.d.). Title of web page in sentence case. Retrieved from http://website.ca/full

OR

Title of web page in sentence case. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://website.ca/full

Formatted Example:

NOTE: If there is no author and no date, the website is likely unreliable and inaccurate. Search the library to find a better source. 

For more help citing websites, see this chart from the official APA website. 

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) A shortened version of the title (2 - 3 words) or the full title if it is short, date of publication, and heading of a section in the article/text and/or paragraph number placed in brackets at the end of the sentence. Write the title in mixed case and in quotations marks. All of these examples are correct:

("Understanding Information," n.d., para. 2).

("Understanding Information," n.d., "Introduction").

("Understanding Information," n.d., "Introduction," para. 2).

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative. If lengthy, abbreviate the organization or group name:

According to the website Infogineering, “single-tasking, and keeping the mind focused on one issue at a time” is a potential solution for reducing “information overload” (“Understanding Information,” n.d., "Solutions").
