How do I cite a webpage from a website in CSE Style?


CSE Name-Year Style recommends:


For those websites that name a person as author of a page:

Author Last Name First Initial(s). Year Mon Day (if available). Title of webpage. Publication Location for Website Creator: Publisher; [accessed date (formatted accessed Year Mon Day)]. URL.

Price D. 2018 Mar 23. Laziness does not exist. Medium. Yorktown Heights: Medium; [accessed 2019 Apr 3].


For those websites that don’t name a person as an author of a page:

Creator of Website.* Copyright date for website (formatted cYear). Publication Location for Website Creator: Publisher (can be the same as creator). Title of webpage; date of webpage (if available) [accessed date (formatted accessed Year Mon Day)]. URL.

Marshall & Sterling. c2022. Poughkeepsie: Marshall & Sterling. History; 2022 [Accessed 2022 Aug 22].

*This could be an organization, business, parent company for the website, etc.


Many webpages will not have specific dates, refer to the Library’s FAQs on “How Do I Cite Sources that Don’t Have a Date?” or “How Do I Cite a Webpage that Only Provides a Copyright Date Range?”


If you need further help, contact a librarian.
