Website or webpage

When citing material found on a website, you should cite it like any other source, usually the author surname in brackets and the date. Do not include the URL of the website in your citation.

You may find that there is not always a personal author. In this case you should identify the corporate author.

The publication date of websites can often be found at the bottom of a webpage.

If you are citing specific information from a website that does not have page numbers, you do not need to include anything to indicate this in the in-text citation.
