Can you please tell me when following the APA citation format what do you put if there is not an author shown? I thought from another class we wrote Unknown, but my current teacher wrote not to do that.Can I not use that reference then?

  • english -

    I had to look this one up. I wasn't sure myself.

    Unknown author. Use the first few words of the title as the reference in the text (capitalize all words in title):

    ("Structuring Lawmaking", 2002)

    Author is listed as "Anonymous". Use it as if it were the author's name.

    (Anonymous, 2003)
