Is citing websites in APA format possible, if I don’t know the text author?
If website doesn’t publicly display a text author, then you can try following advice.
1) Launch your favorite browser and find the source code of webpage. (Most browsers are programmed for a right click win or hold click mac to bring up a box where you can select a needed source.) Look through the meta data, usually the name of text author is placed there. It will be near the top and would look something like this: <meta name=”author” content=”Marry Black Pearl” />
Typically this is the name of whoever built the website. That person may be the author. If it’s not, this person may give the contacts of a real author.
2) You can search registration information of the domain name to find the contacts of the author. Go to website whois.com, find the whois lookup page and enter the domain name in the search box. There you can find contacts of the site owner. Sometimes it is private and may be in the name of the hosting company, but it may give you more info.
Why double spacing is required in APA style?
First of all, your essay text should be readable. The second is the double-spacing leaves some place for handwritten notes and comments. Always the process of proofreading the text started from a typed version of the paper. Then it was edited with a pencil or a pen, and the text retyped one more time.
If sentence in my essay ends with the % symbol, what should I write in APA formatting: a word or symbol of percent?
You should write a percent symbol. In APA format writing, if you are presenting a numeral information, use the percent symbol (e.g. 45%) and if the information is presented in words, you use the word percent (e.g. seven percent).
