REFERENCE EXAMPLES FOR ELECTRONIC ARTICLES
Before you cite an electronic article, you need to know if the electronic
article has a doi (digital object identifier). The doi # can be found on the
abstract page in the databases or on the article. Electronic articles generally
follow the same rules as print articles. However, sometimes there may not
be page numbers listed (especially if the journal is only available
electronically). Also, sometimes articles that are electronic are available
before their print versions, this is usually noted in the reference by placing
the phrase Advanced online publication, after the journal title, but before
the doi.

Personal communication (interview, etc.)
A personal interview should be referenced as a parenthetical citation.
For example: (J. Smith,personal communication, May 17, 2008). If you
would like to include a personal interview as part of your APA
reference list, then include the interviewee, the date of the interview, and
the type of interview.

If the article does NOT have a DOI you are to use the URL of the
