This is a loaded question because the links should not normally connect to the article. Instead a DOI number should be used, or the journal's homepage url. Click here for more information.

Below are two examples of what a journal article's reference should look like - depending on whether it has a DOI or not:


Journal article from a database with a doi number

Kaplan, S. (2008, Fall). A new U.S. policy for Syria: Fostering

political change in a divided state.

Middle East Policy, 15(3), 107-121.

https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1475-4967.2008.00362.x

Journal article from a database with no doi number (note the link goes to the homepage of the journal... just Google the title of the journal (Middle East Policy).

Kaplan, S. (2008, Fall). A new U.S. policy for Syria: Fostering

political change in a divided state. Middle East Policy, 15(3),

107-121. Retrieved from http://www.mepc.org/journal
