Q

I need help creating an APA citation for a print copy of an article from a journal.

Answer

Here are the rules for creating APA citations for an article from a print journal:

Author's name. "Title of the Article." Periodical title. Series number or name if available. Volume number if available. Issue number if available. Date of publication [for a scholarly journal, the year; for other periodicals, the day, month, and year, as available]: inclusive page numbers. Print.

You can find more information about this in the COM Library Cite APA Libguide, linked below.  The guide also has links to some auto-citation tools that you can use to generate APA citations.  Under the Cite APA the EZ Way! tab there is a link to Son of Citation Machine: APA, which can be used for this purpose.  Follow the link below, select Journal from the list of source options, and enter the required information to generate the citation.
