Journal Articles

Rule 5 Journal Articles

  Article titles should appear within single quotation marks

  Article titles should not be italicised (the journal titles should be italicised)

  For unsigned articles, the type of article (such as 'Comment' or 'Note') should appear in place of the author's name

  Where a volume spans multiple years (eg 1992–93), include the year in which the article was published

  Include a full citation for each part if an article has been published in multiple parts - insert (Pt Number) between the title and year

  When an article does not have volume, issue or starting page numbers, use paragraph, part, etc

  Citations of PDF articles without volume, issue or starting page numbers should include a page range of articles and a pinpoint 

Rule 5.10 Articles Published in Online Journals

  Articles from online journals are cited in the same manner as print articles

  It may not be possible to include a volume number, issue number, or starting page

  Use the article number or other identifier instead of the starting page

  Article number or other identifier (eg DOI) should appear as on the source

  Pinpoint references are placed after the article number/identifier, preceded by a comma and a space

  Portable Document Format (PDF) articles' starting page and pinpoint should appear as:

     Article Number/Identifier : Page Range of Article ,  Pinpoint .

  PDF articles' page range spans the number of pages contained in the PDF (eg '1–15')

  Pinpoint refers to a position within the page range (include a paragraph pinpoint where appropriate)
