Electronic journal article

If the electronic journal article is also available in paper format and if the layout, page numbers, text and images are exactly the same, you can just reference it as you would a print journal article.

For a journal article which is only available online or differs from its print version you will need to include the date when you found it and the URL:

Author(s). Year. Article title. Journal Title [Online] volume. Available at: URL [Accessed: day Month year].


Merchent, A.T. 2007. Diet, physical activity, and adiposity in children in poor and rich neighbourhoods: a cross-sectional comparison. Nutrition Journal [Online] 6. Available at: http://www.nutritionj.com/content/pdf/1475-2891-6-1.pdf [Accessed: 27 February 2007].
