How do I find citations?

How do I find citations?

Most citation information will appear on the first page of the article; however, the location of that information will vary from journal to journal. You can find the placement of the journal name, page number, publication date, and volume and issue number located on the top or bottom of the article’s page.

How do you find the citation of an article?

Drilling down by journal titleOnce you have found your journal you may be able to search for your article title within it: look for a link that says “Search within this publication,” or similar. Or “drill down” to find your article by selecting first the date, then the volume, issue, and page number in your citation.

What should an APA in text citation look like?

When using APA format, follow the author-date method of in-text citation. This means that the author’s last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text, like, for example, (Jones, 1998). One complete reference for each source should appear in the reference list at the end of the paper.

Why should we cite specific source?

Citing or documenting the sources used in your research serves three purposes: It gives proper credit to the authors of the words or ideas that you incorporated into your paper. It allows those who are reading your work to locate your sources, in order to learn more about the ideas that you include in your paper.
