Note: In the reference list, include the page range for the whole article. In the text, cite specific page numbers. For articles consulted online, include a URL or the name of the database in the reference list entry. Many journal articles list a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). A DOI forms a permanent URL that begins https://doi.org/. If you don't have a DOI, use a permalink. This URL is preferable to the URL that appears in your browser’s address bar.
