FORMATTING ONLINE SOURCES ON YOUR REFERENCES PAGE
Online sources frequently don't have the same types of publication information that you'd find for a print source. Use as much information as you have.
Other formatting requirements:
SECTION / ARTICLE FROM A WEBSITE
Usually, you’ll use only part of a website (a section or article – see the next example). Only cite an entire website if you really did use all of it.
Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Date of publication). Title of document. Web Site name. URL
Cush, A. (2016, June 24). Hours after Brexit vote, leader of "Leave" movement admits one major promise was a sham. Gawker. http://gawker.com/hours-after-brexit-vote-leader-of-leave-movement-adm-1782570341
If the author is an organization instead of an individual, use the name of the organization where the author should be and omit it from where the site name usually goes.

The use of screen names is acceptable for anonymous bloggers. In the example below, the Bloggess' real identity, Jenny Lawson, is well-known. Since she still blogs using the screen name Bloggess, either would be acceptable as the author's name.

For most videos, the authors will be the producer and, if available, the director. For a TV episode, the authors will be the person who wrote the episode and the person who directed the episode.
