How do I cite journal articles?
Using Academic Writer
In the Academic Writer Reference Center, under the Periodicals category, select Journal article and fill out the form.
Journal article with DOI

Note that for articles without a DOI you find in a library database like ProQuest Central or EBSCO's Academic Search Complete, do not include one. The citation ends after listing the page numbers, and you do not need to include the name of the database or a link to the article.
