If you are citing an entire website, it is not necessary to include a citation for the website in your reference list. Simply include the title and address within the text of your paper.
The Safe Child website includes practical information for parents on how to help their children cope with bullying (http://safechild.org).
When citing specific information from individual web pages, use the following elements to create your citation. For more information on creating citations when some of the elements are missing, see the APA Style Blog post on Missing Pieces.
Note: Citations with more than one line of text should have a hanging indent of 1/2 inch or 5 spaces.
Note on titles: only italicize the title of a document that stands alone (books, reports, etc.), but not the title of a document that is part of a greater whole. If you are not sure whether something stands alone (such as a document on a website), choose not to italicize.
