Citing Articles

Identify the color-coded elements to cite articles on your Reference List:

  • Type the article title in sentence case and the journal title in title case
  • Italicize the journal title and volume number
  • Include the DOI in lower case with no space following the colon, eg. doi:xxxx​
  • If no DOI is available, include the URL - do not add a period at the end

Citations in your paper should be formatted in a black or grayscale font.
