    1) How would I cite this web-site: The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB)? I am researching the article on Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP)
    http://www.asppb.net/ (I need you to help me with in-text citation and reference citation)

    2) How would I cite this web-site, http://www.psychology.ca.gov/applicants/exams/validation_report.pdf? I am researching the article on Examination for the California Psychology Supplemental Examination (CPSE). I went to this web-site first http://www.psychology.ca.gov/index.shtml and then I went over to Quick Hits and click onto Examinations then I click onto Competencies as tested in the CPSE Examination (I need you to help me with in-text citation and reference citation).

    Given that your assignment seems to be psychological in discipline, it would seem the necessary style would happen to be APA ("American Psychological Association"). The APA does have rather strict guidelines, and the association lays out detailed instructions for how to cite pretty much everything that would be considered academically trustworthy or relevant as a source.

    Luckily, that includes websites, namely what the APA would term in the case of your first question a "non-periodical web page or document." The citation for that (in this case, http://www.asppb.net/) would go as follows:

    Author Last Name, Author's First Initial. (Date of publication). Title of the page in
    italics. Retrieved from http://www.asppb.net/.

    Everything stated above must be in the citation. If you're wondering about the "author," it's just the publisher in this case. As for the second question, this source is a bit trickier. It is trickier precisely because, although you accessed it online, it is technically a published document. In this case, you'll want to treat it as a report from a private organization. That format is given in an example below, as follows:

    American Psychiatric Association. (2000). Practice guidelines for the treatment of
    patients with eating disorders (2nd ed.). Washington, DC: Author goes here.

    Again, each piece of the citation's information needs to be present for it to be considered an academically trustworthy source; in this case, you're just fine for your second source. Now, you may be asking how you can continue if you're still having trouble writing the citations; luckily, there's something that can help you even beyond these two sources. That would be the following website:

    Just follow the guidelines in the tan box, and you should be just fine - it should even format the citation correctly for you once you follow along.
