Some tips when referencing Articles, Journals & Magazines
This category includes information about print, electronic or online articles.
Articles are usually produced at regular intervals, in publications such as journals/periodicals/magazines or newspapers.
- Including database or device information in article and book references is rarely needed, as most content is available through a variety of platforms, meaning different readers will have different methods of access. However, if a DOI has been assigned, this should be included.
- If no DOI is assigned to the resource and the article is found online via the Internet, include the homepage URL.
- No retrieval date is required.
Format for a reference list:-
Author(s) surname, Initials. (Year). Title of article. Journal or magazine title, volume number(issue number), page number(s). https://doi.org/xx.xxxx
Note: The title of a journal or magazine and volume number need to be italicised. Use sentence case for article names and capitalise main words for journal titles.
