Sources With No Page Numbers (APA 7th ed.)

For In-Text Citations:

When you directly quote a source that does not have page numbers, you have three options for in-text citations. Use the option that will best help your reader find the quotation in the source:

Option 1: Provide a paragraph number; you will probably have to count them manually.

According to the IceBridge Project leader, "In addition to the airborne and satellite measurements, scientists will be out on the ice taking height and density measurements as well" (Gray, 2019, para. 6).

Option 2: Provide a heading or section name.

Medical consensus is that the flu is spread "mainly by tiny droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk" (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019, How Flu Spreads section).

Option 3: Provide an abbreviated heading or section name in quotation marks if the name is too long to cite in full.

Research has shown that an average of 8% of the U.S. population experiences flu symptoms each flu season, "with a range of between 3% and 11%, depending on the season" (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019, "How Many People" section).

 

For the References list:

Provide an entry for the entire work. You do not need to specify the section or paragraph that you used.
