    • Citing MAGAZINES & JOURNALS How to Read a PERIODICAL Source Citation
    • Once you’ve identified your article as a MAGAZINE or JOURNAL, where do you go from there?
    • Citing a source is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle – each piece has to come together just so in order for the puzzle to make the big picture.
    • Locate your citation information at the end of your article. Look for “MLA” or “Works Cited” or “How to Cite.” Example Article
    • Example Article
    • Some articles will have MLA citation only, APA citation only, or BOTH for you to look at as you are adding your information to your bibliography chart or NoodleTools. It can also be helpful to look at the beginning of the article for more details.
    • Now let’s put the pieces together …
    • AUTHOR(S) OF ARTICLE (hint – it is okay if you do not have an author)
    • TITLE OF ARTICLE (hint – this title often appears in “quotation marks” )
    • PAGE NUMBERS (hint – this is the page # as it appeared in the actual magazine or journal)
    • NAME OF MAGAZINE OR JOURNAL (hint – this title is usually italicized)
    • VOLUME & ISSUE hint – this information is often written like the following – 6(12) 6 = Volume (12) = Issue
    • PUBLICATION DATE (hint – this is the day the magazine/journal was published, NOT the day you went online)
    • RETRIEVAL INFORMATION (pick ONLY the ONE that applies to your article) 1. DOI - http://dx.doi.org/10.1037/0002-9432.76.4.482 OR 2. DATABASE NAME + ACCESSION/DOCUMENT # OR 3. URL to the .COM
    • Now you’re ready to create your works cited entry in your working bibliography in NoodleTools.
