APA Style Guide: eJournal article

This guide explains how to use the APA Style. It includes a short tutorial.

eJournal article

Reference: Author(s) Last name, Initials. (Year). Article title. Journal Title, Volume(Issue no.), Page numbers. DOI/URL

Example: Hayes, B. C., McAllister, I., & Dowds, L. (2007). Integrated Education, Intergroup Relations, and Political Identities in Northern Ireland. Social Problems, 54, 454-482. 10.1525/sp.2007.54.4.454.

In-Text-Citation:

  • Author(s) Last name (Year)
  • (Author(s) Last name Year)

Example:

  • Hayes et al. (2007) show...
  • A different approach (Hayes et al., 2007) shows….

Note: only include the issue number where it is available.

Note on URLs: To get shorter URLs you are permitted to use a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) as above. These can usually be found under the title of the journal article either on a database or on the journal article itself. DOIs are permanent links that will not disappear over time.

Note: If there are no page numbers, and you need to quote directly from a source, include either a section heading or paragraph number in your in-text-citation, e.g. Hayes et al., 2007, para. 6.
