NOTE: If there is no author and no date, the webpage might not be the best source to use to support a college assignment because there is no way to confirm who wrote the information or when it was posted.
Credible webpages will typically have at least one individual author or an organizational author (the organization that created the webpage), such as Bow Valley College or Alberta Health Services.
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").
