Tips for Citing Websites
Tips for citing websites:
- Website name should be based on what's on the web page itself (usually in the upper-left corner).
- Article title is probably the next biggest font on the page after the website name. Do not repeat the article title as the website name.
- Publisher can often be found in the copyright information at the very bottom of a web page, or look for a link to an "About" page.
- Date should not use the copyright date for the whole website at the bottom of the page with the publisher. This isn't necessarily accurate for the individual article you're looking at, since it's probably part of the site template.
