Referencing 3 - Articles

See the previous post on how to add a digital or online source:

Print Journal Articles

Insert a new reference, and control-click its in-text citation.

As 'Article' is the default, complete the relevant 'Reference Data' fields.

Enter 'Author' in the 'Last Name' and 'First Name' fields.

'First Initial' will be automatically generated.

For multiple given names, add a space between them to include both in 'Initials'.

The program will use semi-colons (';') and a space between multiple authors, by default.
E.g. (LastName1, F1., Year1; LastName2, F2., Year2; and LastName3, F3., Year3)

Electronic or E-Journal Articles

If you have a scanned page, then you may be able to treat it as a print copy.

This will depend on your required or recommended reference style.

Enter the URL, or web address, in the 'Pages' field.

Otherwise, use 'Electronic Journal Article' for e-journal publications.

The 'Access Date' will refer to the first time you check that article version.

Should the original change, you have options on how to address this.

You can update both the citation and reference to include its updated information.

Or you will need to reference it separately to keep information from both versions.

Newspaper Articles

Newspaper articles in print will fit the default 'Article' type best.

However, e-news articles may better suit either of the others.

Select 'Article', 'Electronic Journal Article', or 'Web Page'.

Usually, you will enter an online article as a 'Web Page' or an 'Electronic Journal Article'.

Let us know how you find referencing.
