Do you need help with citations? Here are some resources you can use:
Diana Hacker's Research & Documentation Online, 5th ed. (an APA Citation Guide) - Research & Documentation Online, 5th ed., provides a good resource for formating and citing papers using the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2010). It offers examples for doing end of text and in text citations as well as providing a sample paper.

7. If the author is a government agency or another organization, name the organization in the signal phrase or in the parenthetical citation the first time you cite the source.
12. When possible, cite electronic sources, including online sources, as you would any other source, giving the author and the year.
Atkinson (2001) found that children who spent at least four hours a day watching TV were less likely to engage in adequate physical activity during the week.
If no author is named, mention the title of the source in the signal phrase or give the first word or two of the title in the parentheses (see also item 6). (If an organization serves as the author, see item 7.)
No page numbers
APA ordinarily requires page numbers for quotations, and it recommends them for summaries and paraphrases from long sources. When an electronic source lacks stable numbered pages, your citation should include information that will help readers locate the particular passage being cited.
If the source has numbered paragraphs, use the paragraph number preceded by the abbreviation “para.”: (Hall, 2008, para. 5). If the source contains headings, cite the appropriate heading in parentheses; you may also indicate the paragraph under the heading that you are referring to, even if the paragraphs are not numbered.
