Notes
  • If you have an article as a PDF document, cite it as you would a print journal; the PDF version is exactly the same as the print version.
  • You do not need to state anywhere that it is a PDF
  • If you do not have the PDF version of an article, see the instructions for citing an ‘Article from a database (non-PDF)’
  • Any journal which requires your university login should be cited as an ‘Article from a database’
  • A journal that belongs to a database will always have visible information about the database name, i.e. ProQuest, JStor, Expanded Academic, Cambridge Journals, etc.
  • If you are unsure whether or not the journal is in a database, contact the librarians at your campus library.

Notes
  •  This example differs from referencing a PDF because the online html version of an article won’t have page numbers to refer to.
  • Instead of citing a page number, refer to the paragraph number. Don’t worry if it isn’t exact; just give a good estimation of where to find the quote you used.
  • Any journal which requires your university login should be cited as an ‘Article from a database’
  • A journal that belongs to a database will always have visible information about the database name, i.e. ProQuest, JStor, Expanded Academic, Cambridge Journals, etc.
  • If you are unsure whether or not the journal is in a database, contact the librarians at your campus library
  • For clarification of this style rule see section 15.15.3 of R.M. Ritter, Oxford Style Manual (Oxford: OUP, 2003). .
