Journal Article with DOI (Print or Electronic)
Author Last Name, First Initial. Second Initial.(Year). Title of article. Journal Title, Volume Number(Issue Number), Page Numbers. http://dx.doi.org/xx.xxxxxxx.xx.x

** In an APA reference, the second and any subsequent lines should be indented a half inch (this is difficult to do within this Answers/FAQ system, so you will not see it in the reference examples above).
