What is a bibliography for websites?
A bibliography for websites is a list of works cited from the internet that is included at the end of your essay. When you create a bibliography you need to list all of the sources that have informed your writing. This includes articles and information retrieved online.
Each academic institution will have a preferred style and guidelines on how they want the information presented, so it’s crucial that you follow it to ensure you don’t miss out on valuable marks. To view examples of how website citations are formatted in your academic institution, select your style from the list below.
How to write a website bibliography
Different source types require different formatting. So the way you reference websites used in your academic work is distinct from other formats, such as books.
The exact structure of the website citation will depend on whether you have the author information or not. If you do, you’ll need to include the author’s name and date of publication, along with the article title and URL of where you retrieved the information from. If the author’s name isn’t available then it’s acceptable to leave it out, but all the other information must be provided.
Is there an easier way? Yes, using RefME’s free mobile and web tools you can have the whole bibliography completed automatically in a matter of seconds in whichever style you choose. We’ve got 7,000 and counting – so you’re sure to find the one you need.
