Hello and welcome to the video reference series presented by In this lecture, we will discuss how to cite article retrieved from an electronic database in apa style.
As usual, the citation starts with the last name of the author first, and is then followed by the initial of the first name and then the initial of the middle name. The year that the article was published in is enclosed in brackets.
This is followed by the name of the article you have included.
Then you include the journal title, followed by the volume number. All of this italicized. Then you include the page number which is not Italicized.
You conclude this citation with the information of the database you retrieved the article from and when you retrieved it. You can better understand this with a example.
Here is an example of this citation. Notice how the page number is not a single number but a range. This is where the article starts and ends. You can see how the magazine title and volume number is italicized.
Notice how there is only a comma after the date and nowwhere else. This is it for today. As always a copy of the citation is included in the description and you can copy off from it if its urgent. Take care! And, thank you for visiting our videos!
Sample Citation:
Last name, First initial. Middle initial. (Year). Article title. Journal Title, Volume, pages. Retrieved Month Day, Year, from Database title database.
