How do I reference… a webpage in the Cranfield Author-date style?
Another really common referencing question. It’s on the internet so I don’t need to cite it, do I? Yes, of course you do. If it’s not yours, stay safe and cite it.
We’ll look first at how to create a bibliographic reference for the end of your work. Here is what you need:
- Author of web page (whether an individual or an organisation)
- (Year the site was last published/updated)
- Title of Internet site (in italics)
- Available at: URL
- (Accessed: date)
So, now for some examples…
Maybe you’ve been using Aswath Damodaran’s personal webpages – Damodaran Online – in your finance assignment. A reference for an item on his site would read:
Damodaran, A. (2017) Damodaran Online. Available at: http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~adamodar/. (Accessed: 21 January 2017).
If you’ve been using information from a corporate site, such as Great Place to Work, in your research, your reference would look like this:
Great Place to Work (2017) Wellbeing and the Importance of Workplace Culture. Available at: http://www.greatplacetowork.co.uk/WellbeingandCulture. (Accessed: 21 January 2017).
Where you make reference to these items in your text, follow the normal Author-date conventions and simply follow any mention with (Damodaran, 2017) or (Great Place to Work , 2017) or a variation thereon.
As always, if you have any questions about referencing or citations, please contact MIRC or the Kings Norton Library.
