Well, that depends. If it is the print version, it should be listed on the cover or spine, just like it would be for a magazine. If you are looking at an article you found in an electronic database, such as EBSCO Academic Search Complete, you will see the issue date for the journal in which the article appears either displayed in the result list or when you click on the article title. The issue date is usually accompanied by a volume number and an issue number.

If you are looking at an article in a database or from another electronic source, also look above the article title or at the end of the article. The issue date and volume number will often be listed there, as well.

If you are looking at something specific, and still can't find the publication date, give us more information, and we will help you locate it.
