Q. How do I cite direct quotations from online material?


Credit direct quotations of online material by giving the author, year and page number in parentheses. However, many electronic sources do not provide page numbers. If there are no page numbers you should use the paragraph symbol or section, para identifiers/abbreviations. For more information, see page 171-72 of the APA Manual 6th edition.

See the No Page Numbers FAQ for more direction. 

Please note that this information only serves as guidance. For additional assistance with APA Style, you may contact the NCU Academic Success Center at asc@ncu.edu or on the Commons: https://vac.ncu.edu/writing-center-commons/
