Hi Sereen

You can reference it like an article from an online book.

The information you need to gather to reference a wikipedia article includes:

  • article title in signal quotation mark
  • year (last updated year)
  • Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia
  • Wikimedia Foundation Inc. for publisher
  • date you viewed the source
  • URL

Here is an example:

'Altmetrics' 2016, in Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia, Wikimedia Foundation Inc., viewed 23 April 2016, <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altmetrics>.

Hope this helps.
