For a web page that is not an electronic journal you should record
the following information in the reference:
Author or Editor (if available). Year (if available). Title [Online]. Place: Publisher
(if available). Available at: web address of document [Accessed: day Month year].
Lane, C. et al. 2003. The future of professionalised work: UK and
Germany compared [Online]. London: Anglo-German Foundation for the Study of Industrial
Society. Available at: http://www.agf.org.uk/pubs/pdfs/1232web.pdf [Accessed: 10 May 2007].
Citing web pages can be problematic:
If no personal author is visible, you can include the organisation responsible for the
web page instead. If neither are obvious, begin your reference with the title of the document,
then insert the date.
If the title is not on the page, look at the top line of the browser. The title of the
document should appear there, above the menu bar.
If no publisher is available, use the organisation responsible instead, although this information
can be viewed as optional.
If no date is visible write [no date] instead.
If you quote from a web page with no page numbers, you can use the paragraph numbers or
sub-headings in your citation.
