How to Cite Something You Found on a Website in APA Style

How to Cite Something You Found on a Website in APA Style
by Chelsea Lee Perhaps the most common question we get about APA Style is “How do I cite a website?” or “How do I cite something I found on a website?” First, to cite a website in general, but not a specific document on that website, see this FAQ. Once you’re at the level of citing a particular page or document, the key to writing the reference list entry is to determine what kind of content the page has. What seems to flummox our readers is what to do when the content doesn’t fall into an easily defined area. Content in that egg white area may seem confusing to cite, but the template for references from this area is actually very simple, with only four pieces (author, date, title, and source): That format description in brackets is used only when the format is something out of the ordinary, such as a blog post or lecture notes; otherwise, it's not necessary. Examples of Online References Here’s an example where no author is identified in this online news article: Related:  Avoiding PlagiarismAcademic Writing Sources & Support

You can't make this stuff up: Plagiarism guideline paper retracted for...plagiarism This could be an April Fools’ joke. But it isn’t. In what can only be described as an ironic twist, the Indian Journal of Dermatology is retracting a paper that presents guidelines on plagiarism for…wait for it… Plagiarism. Here’s the notice: The article “Development of a guideline to approach plagiarism in Indian scenario” [1] is being retracted as the manuscript has been found to be copied from the first round questionnaire of the dissertation entitled ‘Developing a comprehensive guideline for overcoming and preventing plagiarism at the international level based on expert opinion with the Delphi method’ by Dr. The Indian Journal of Dermatology has taken a hard line on plagiarism in the past, banning at least three groups of authors, by our count. Indian Journal of Dermatology maintains a strict principle of absolute zero tolerance in matters related to plagiarism. Shamim’s paper in the Indian Journal of Dermatology includes definitions and strategies to prevent and detect plagiarism.

Je verwijst altijd op twee plaatsen: 1. In de tekst, op de plaats waar je de informatie bespreekt. 2. In een literatuurlijst, een bibliografie, of een voetnoot. Maar hoe doe je dat precies? Zoek je over een bepaalde referentiestijl beknopte informatie, een handleiding of nuttige websites? Deze stijl wordt gebruikt in de psychologie en verwante disciplines.

Writing a Research Proposal - Organizing Your Research Paper Beginning the Proposal Process As with writing a traditional research paper, research proposals are generally organized the same way throughout most social science disciplines. Proposals vary between ten and twenty pages in length. A good place to begin is to ask yourself a series of questions: What do I want to study Why is the topic important? In the end, your research proposal should document your knowledge of the topic and highlight enthusiasm for conducting the study. In general your proposal should include the following sections: I. In the real world of higher education, a research proposal is most often written by scholars seeking grant funding for a research project or it's the first step in getting approval to write a doctoral dissertation. Think about your introduction as a narrative written in one to three paragraphs that succinctly answers the following four questions: What is the central research problem? II. III. IV. V. VI. VII.

Xplora | Bronnen vermelden in APA-stijl Als je teksten en ideeën van anderen in een eigen document gebruikt moet je de bron vermelden. Doe je dit niet dan maak je je schuldig aan plagiaat. Wie dus bij een scriptie of publicatie literatuur en andere bronnen gebruikt, moet daar op een correcte manier naar verwijzen. Lezers kunnen zo nagaan op welke bronnen je je baseert en of je voldoende bronnen gebruikt hebt. En of die bronnen goed gebruikt en betrouwbaar zijn. Hoe werkt de APA-stijl? Algemene informatie Het verwijzen in de tekst zelf kan op twee manieren: citeren of parafraseren. Er zijn verschillende manieren om bronnen te vermelden in de literatuurlijst.

Citing Yourself If you cite or quote your previous work, treat yourself as the author and your own previous course work as an unpublished paper, as shown in the APA publication manual. For example, if Marie Briggs wanted to cite a paper she wrote at Walden in 2012, her in-text citation might look like this: Briggs (2012) asserted that previous literature on the psychology of tightrope walkers was faulty in that it "presumed that risk-taking behaviors align neatly with certain personality traits or disorders" (p. 4). And in the reference list: Briggs, M. (2012). manuscript, Walden University. If your original work contained citations from other sources, you will need to include those same citations in the new work as well, per APA. According to Briggs (2012), recent psychologists such as "Presley and Johnson (2009) too quickly attributed risk-taking to genetic factors, ignoring the social family issues that often influence the decision to explore pursuits such as tightrope walking" (p. 5).
