When citing material from the web in your reference list citation, you will list the author, the year, the title of the webpage or document, Retrieved from, and then the URL of the webpage:
Author, A. (year). Title of webpage. Retrieved from http://exacturlofwebpage
The in-text citation will be the author and the year:
If the material that you are citing is susceptible to change or updating, then you will also need to include a retrieval date. Most webpages do not change frequently, so this information is rarely included.
Example: Author, A. (year). Title of webpage. Retrieved January 13, 2011, from http://exacturlofwebpage
