This paper examined the issues in citing internet resources using APA style. It was discovered that without citation, there may be no other means of obtaining clarification or additional information about a write up. It was therefore recommended that sources used as evidence in writing a piece of information should be clearly cited and referenced accordingly; only works cited in-text should be included in the reference list; there is also the urgent need for writers and information users on the internet to acquire the basic skills necessary for citing internet resources in line with acceptable styles or formats.
