Instructions for Written Work

Web pages

  •  If the author is not mentioned, the in-text reference is started with a corporate author (organisation, municipality, company, etc.). If the reference begins with a corporate author, it is not repeated in the slot for the publisher. 
  • If the date of publication is not visible, the abbreviation n.d. (no date) is given instead
  • If the website is frequently updated, the Retrieved date is included in the reference in the bibliography. Such websites include news sites, the Current Care Guidelines, works of reference, and company and product websites    
  • The identifier/address of the website is added to the end of the bibliographical entry. Always use a permanent address (DOI or URN) instead of URL  
  • APA 7 instructs to abbreviate long web addresses. This practice has not been adopted by SeAMK.
