WR115 Kaspari: Purdue OWL online

Purdue Online Writing Lab for MLA and APA

Purdue OWL resources we discussed in class:

  • Sample paper in APA format, second to the last page shows a reference list
  • How to cite an online dictionary or encyclopedia in APA format

    Often encyclopedias and dictionaries do not provide bylines (authors' names). When no byline is present, move the entry name to the front of the citation. Provide publication dates if present or specify (n.d.) if no date is present in the entry.
