APA Style Guide for Business: Websites

Format for Websites

The APA 7th ed. format for websites is:

Author (or Name of Group). (Date). Title of work. Website Name. URL.

Omit the website name if it is the same as the Author.

Use "retrieved month, day, year, from URL" if the page is designed to change over time.

The date used should relate to the content. If it is a footer, then use n.d. (no date).
