How to Cite an Electronic Article (Journal Article Example)

Turabian citation examole for electronic journal article



  • When citing an electronic resource use the print citation as the primary format then include URL and access date to complete the citation
  • REMEMBER: A URL alone in your reference list is NOT enough.  You must provide as much publication detail as possible so a reader can locate the source of the information even if the URL changes.
  • For an information source accessed via the free web add the URL.  For a library database use the stable URL OR PURL if available.  After both include the date you accessed the information. 
  • Do not abrbeviate months when noting dates of access.
