How do I cite online journal articles?

Most of the journal articles you have retrieved for your work were probably found online through one of our article databases, such as CINAHL. If this is the case, you need to consider the following:

Example of what a doi might look like: doi:10.4839/087-38278.23.44.433

Example of homepage URL: http://www.healio.com/journals/jne (for the Journal of Nursing Education)
