Using APA to reference an online dictionary

We’ve had a couple of queries recently about how to reference online dictionaries using APA. Here is the answer:

In-text:

With APA, you place the word you are defining, for example ‘Medicine’ in the author position and place double quotation marks around the word.

“Medicine” (2016) or (“Medicine”, 2016)

In your reference list:

 Word being defined. (Year). In Title of reference book  (edition if later than first e.g. 3rd ed.). Retrieved from url

Medicine. (2016). In Oxford English dictionary (3rd ed.). Retrieved from http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/115715?rskey=kaRczE&result=1&isAdvanced=false#ei
