Internet Site or electronic document with no author

Move the title of the page (or the online document) into the author position:


All 33 Chile miners freed in flawless rescue. (2010, October 13). Retrieved from http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39625809/ns/world_news-americas/

Note: The date for this source (October 13, 2010), is inverted in the citation: the year goes first, followed by a comma, and then the month and day.

Internet Site with no date

When no posted or created date is obvious or is missing on a website, use “(n.d.)” for “no date” in place of a date:


The College of William and Mary. (n.d.) College mission statement. Retrieved from http://www.wm.edu/about/administration/provost/mission/index.php

Note: The date to use from a web page is sometimes difficult to determine. The APA blog entry for dating online documents cautions against using any of the following as the date--a “last modified,” or “revised on” date or copyright date that is site-wide--as none of these usually refers to when the material was actually created or posted. If no obvious posted date is available at the beginning or the end of a document, use “n.d.” for “no date” instead (as in the preceding example)

An App

Rightsholder, A. A. (year). Title of software or program (Version number) [Description of form]. Retrieved from http://xxxx

Note: “Rightsholder, A. A.” stands for either an individual author or a corporate author of the software.


Skyscape. (2010). Skyscape medical resources (Version 1.9.11) [Mobile application software]. Retrieved from http://itunes.apple.com/
