How to reference Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy in APA referencing?

I tried looking through the Referencing Guide for APA but I am unsure if I should treat it like a normal website or if there any other methods?

APA treats reference books, such as encyclopedias and dictionaries, in the same way as books and book chapters. To reference an entry from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, follow the examples below:

Author example (check the Author Citation Info tab to the left of the encyclopedia entry to find out the author/s):

Hurthouse, R., & Pettigrove, G. (2016). Virtue ethics. In E. Zalta (Ed.), Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Retrieved from

No author example:

Virtue ethics. (2016). In E. Zalta (Ed.), Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Retrieved from  

N.B. the in-text reference for an entry with no author would look like this:
("Title of entry", date)
