Citing Journal Articles

  • Citations for online journals must have the access date and details of the database in which the journal appears online (databases are 'bundles' of journals and a journal article found online will often be in a journal that is part of a bigger database)
  • Take care when citing that you indicate which is the title of the article and which is the title of the journal.
