Website or page on a website

Reference: #. Author(s). Webpage title [Internet]. Location: Publisher; Year of publication [updated Year Month Day; cited Year Month Day]. Available from: URL​

In-Text-Citation:

Use a superscript number (like this: ¹) in the text at the place where you are indicating that you are citing from a source.

Example:

Measurement and gathering of economic, geographical, age profiles, and educational data of health service users can all help end inequality in health outcomes.12

Note: If no date of publication is available, use (undated) or (no date) instead of the date. This shows you have not just forgotten to include the date.
