Web pages

When citing online material make sure you know what type of source you are citing. Is it a web page, a pdf-publication or maybe a blog? If the web page can be compared to a printed publication (e.g. book, article, theses, annual report) the citation should be accordingly to type of source.

A reference to a web page should include the same information as a printed document. There can be a named author, a person or an organization.  If these can not be found, the web page title is given in the same manner as with articles and books with no author. The web page title is italicized. The year given is either the year given as the web pages date of publication or the latest update. If no year can be found add s.a. (sine anno = without year). Add URL and date of access.
