Example APA Style: Internet article

The APA has specific rules about how to cite an internet article. Remember to record the whole URL (www.scribbr.nl/easy/article) instead of just using the cover page (www.scribbr.nl).

If you’re not referring to an article but you’re referring to a photo, video etc., you need to place the type of source in square brackets after the title.
