How do I cite a dictionary entry in APA?
APA Style (7th ed.)
General Format: WordEntry. (Year). In Dictionary name (edition). Place: Publisher or Retrieved from URL
Caronavirus. (n.d.) In Oxford English dictionary. Retrieved November 25, 2020, from https://www.oed.com/view/Entry/258346?redirectedFrom=caronavirus#eid
- "When a stable or archived version of the work is cited . . . a retrieval date is not necessary" (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 324).
- In-text citation: ("Caronavirus", n.d.)
- n.d. = no date - most online dictionaries and encyclopedias are continuously updated but use the year of the latest update date if there is one.
