There are lots of examples of how to reference journals, or specifically, articles found in a journal. Your short referencing guide should provide details for your chosen referencing style.

You may also want to look at the Cite Them Right website, under Journals - Journal Articles. The site defaults to Harvard but there is an option to change the examples to MHRA, OSCOLA, Vancouver or APA.

Here's just one example for you, in Harvard, which the majority of students use:

Shirazi, T. (2010) 'Successful teaching placements in secondary schools: achieving QTS practical handbooks', European Journal of Teacher Education, 33(3), pp. 323–326. doi: 10.1080/02619761003602246.

For more information about what a DOI  is, and how to deal with multiple authors, please check your short guide or the Cite Them Right website.

For more information about referencing a journal article in other styles, please see the full guidance for the relevant style, available on our referencing page.
