Style notes

  • If no authors are listed, begin the citation with the title of the article.
  • Format articles without a volume as Year;(Issue):Pages or without an issue as Year;Volume:Pages. For journals that do not have volume and issue numbers, include the date the article was posted online, followed by the page numbers e.g. April 2002:518. For articles published online before being assigned volume, issue or page numbers, include the words 'published online' and the date, e.g. Published online August 10, 2020. 
  • Some online articles will have an e-locator (e.g. ' CD007160', 'e11' or 'Article 52') instead of page numbers. Include these in place of the page numbers.
  • For articles with supplement or part numbers, place these inside brackets instead of the issue number or in addition e.g. Volume(pt 1) or Volume(issue)(suppl 2).
  • Only include an ‘accessed date’ and URL for an online article where no DOI is available.
