APA 7th Edition

The 7th edition of the APA Style manual doesn't provide a specific example of how to reference an online newsletter article; however, the following generic references are based on the template provided in the APA Style manual for a periodical reference:

Authored online newsletter article

Author, A. (year, Month day). Title of article. Title of Newsletter, volume#(issue#), page#-page#. URL

  • In-text citation: (Author, year, p. X)
  • If the newsletter doesn't provide some of the publication details, such as the volume and issue numbers, leave that information out of the reference. The information provided for the publication date will depend on whether the publication is a daily, monthly, or yearly publication. Use the date provided in the article for the publication date.

Online newsletter article, no author

If the newsletter article doesn't have a stated author (which is different than "Anonymous"), move the title of the article into the author position in the reference:

Title of article. (year, Month day). Title of Newsletter, volume#(issue#), page#-page#. URL

  • In-text citation: "Title of Article", year, p. X)
  • If the newsletter doesn't provide some of the publication details, such as the volume and issue numbers, leave that information out of the reference. The information provided for the publication date will depend on whether the publication is a daily, monthly, or yearly publication. Use the date provided in the article for the publication date.

For information on citing a work without a stated author in citations, see pages 264-265 in the APA Style manual. For information on referencing a work without a stated author, see page 289 in the APA Style manual.
