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 – Kings Norton Library and MIRC on Cranfield campus or Barrington Library on Shrivenham campus.
