Example APA Style: Wikipedia
Wikipedia can be a useful and fast tool to gain knowledge about a topic. However, it is not desirable to use Wikipedia as a source for your dissertation. If you want to refer to Wikipedia anyway, according to the APA Style you need to use the same notation as for a normal internet source .
Because Wikipedia articles can change from time to time, it’s important that you record the date on which you retrieved the Wikipedia page.
