Often encyclopedias and dictionaries do not provide page numbers, bylines (authors' names), or dates. The URL of the article in your citation takes the place of a page number. When no byline is present, move the entry name (title of the article) to the front of the citation. Provide publication dates if present after the entry name or specify (n.d.) if no date is present in the entry.

Feminism. (n.d.). In Encyclopædia Britannica online. Retrieved from

Note: most online encyclopedia articles provide the citation in various formats at the end of the article.
