repeated citations

Recommended Posts


Throughout my Chem EE (APA citation), I'm using different pieces of information from the same page in the same website. So I have the same in-text citation whenever I use the website's info (which is fine, I think, because there are a lot of other citations in between), but in the bibliography, I have the same citation repeated four times. Is that fine or should I use an abbreviation? What should I do about it?

This is the bibliography citation btw:

ACID_BASE INDICATORS. (2017). Ch.ic.ac.uk. Retrieved 19 June 2017, from http://www.ch.ic.ac.uk/vchemlib/course/indi/indicator.html

If it's all from the same page on the same website, you should only need to put it in the bibliography once. A bibliography is just a list of all of the sources you cited in your paper. Even if you cite the same source 65 times in your paper, it still only goes in the bibliography once.
