Using APA for Online Sources Made Easy
You've drafted your research paper and found what you think is a great source on the web. But, it doesn't have a page number or a publishing house to use on the reference page.
Fortunately, the APA has rules specifically for online sources.
There are two types of source you will deal with online - a document and a periodical. An online document would include a content page from a static website such as this one. An online periodical would be the equivalent of a magazine online, such as a professional journal article or a blog post.
Here is how you cite them. There are exceptions, of course, but we won't deal with them here.
