Webpage v. Website

Specific Web Page

  •  Individual file posted on the web similar to a specific article in a journal, magazine, or newspaper or a specific chapter in a book
  • Has unique (often very long) URL such as - http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2014/10/what-a-tangled-web-website-versus-webpage.html
  • REQUIRES formal in-text citation and reference listing when using information from a specific web page

Entire Website

  • Collection of web pages provided by one person or organization similar to an entire book, journal, magazine, or newspaper
  • All of the specific, individual web pages posted on the site trace back to a common (usually short) URL (home page of the host site) that serves as a gateway to the specific web pages such as - http://blog.apastyle.org
  • DO NOT use a formal in-text citation and reference listing to refer to an entire website; in the text use the website title and URL such as - The American Psychological Association’s APA Style Blog (http://blog.apastyle.org) is an excellent resource for APA Style questions.
