APA referencing: Journal articles

To cite a journal article you will need to record the following information:

Author. (Year). Article title. Journal Title, Volume Number, pages.

Heinze, H. J., Mangun, G. R., Buchert, W., Hinrichs, H., Scholz, M., & Munte, T.F. (1994). Combined spatial and temporal imaging of brain activity during visual selective attention in humans. Nature, 372, 543-546.

Tips:
  • Write the journal title and volume number in italics.
  • Only include the issue number if every issue of the journal starts at page 1. If this is the case write the issue number in brackets next to the volume number e.g. 23(2).
  • The volume number and date of the journal is usually written at the very top or bottom of the article.
