The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences uses APA 6th style of citing and referencing. The Library provides a guide with examples of in-text citing and a variety of reference list examples.
The Library has produced an online tutorial designed to help you learn the principles of citing and referencing.
Use National Library of Medicine to find journal title abbreviations or full names of journals
A DOI (digital object identifier) is a unique alphanumeric code for persistent identification of an electronic item on the Internet.
A DOI name may look something like this DOI: 10.1080/10911359.2011.535733
Not all articles are allocated with a DOI, although they are becoming more common. The DOI may be listed on the front page of an article, or within the database record.
If you have a DOI and want to see the matching citation (or the full-text if you have access), use a DOI resolver http://dx.doi.org/, or try pasting the DOI into a Google search.
APA Style indicates that when no DOI is available for an online article, you should provide the URL of the journal home page.
The following document outlines how to locate the journal home page using either the library catalogue or using Google.
