Remember, for reference list entries, you will always need to give the full citation information. The basic elements for a reference list entry for an article from a database consist of:
- Title and (if available) subtitle of the article
- Publishing information: Title of the journal, volume and (if available) issue number, page numbers, Database name, https://doi.org/xxxxx (if available)
You usually find this information in the article details provided by the database or somewhere on the first page of the article.
What does DOI mean?
The DOI (digital object identifier) will lead the reader to a stable webpage. It is a system that was developed so the reader would not encounter a broken link.
APA Basic Article Template
Author last name, Initials. (Date). Title: Subtitle of the article. Title of the Journal, volume #(issue # if available), page #-page #. https://doi.org/xxxxx (if available)
