APA 7th Referencing: Articles

This guide provides information and resources for students and staff about APA 7th, the referencing style used at William Angliss Institute.

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 titlevolume 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.
