APA Journal Article Citation Example

The journal article citation begins with the authors last name followed by a comma, then their initials followed by a period. Multiple authors are separated using a comma. An ampersand (&) instead of “and” between two authors or between the second to last and last authors. Next, the publication year is enclosed inside parentheses and followed with a period. Next is the article title in sentence style caps including the subtitle followed by a period. The article title is followed by the journal title and is in headline style caps and italics followed by a comma then the journal volume number is in italics followed by the issue number enclosed in parentheses but not in italics, then followed by a comma. Next is the inclusive page range of the article followed by a period. The reference citation ends with the doi number assigned to the article. For in-text parenthetical citations of works by two authors enclose the authors last names separated by an ampersand (&) instead of the word “and” followed by a comma then the publication year inside parentheses. For in-text narrative citations use the author’s last name(s) separated by the word “and” directly followed by the publication year enclosed inside parentheses.
