Following on from our previous posts about referencing books, let’s now have a look at how to reference journal articles.
Journal articles are pretty simple too. They require the following elements to create a bibliographic reference:
- Author(s) of the article (Surname, Initials.)
- (Year of publication).
- Title of article.
- Title of the journal in full – in italics,
- Volume – in italics(Issue – not in italics)
- Page details.
And how should the reference look?
So if we were to reference the article here in the APA7 style…
… it would look like this:
La Porta, V. & Migheli, M. (2019). Grapes grow better in the backyard: The effect of organic growth strategies on Italian wineries’ profits. International Journal of wine business research, 31(2), 243-259.
If your article does not have a DOI but was retrieved online, you should also include the URL.
Always remember to format your references with a hanging indent.
For all your referencing questions – please contact your Library.
Please note: Cranfield supports two different referencing styles – APA7 (Author-date) and Numbered (NLM). Please make sure you use the style preferred by your supervisor or lecturer. The advice above relates only to the APA7 style. If you have any questions about referencing, please contact the Library.
