PHIL 1320: Ethics and Society: Citation

This guide was created for Jonathan Lollar's PHIL 1320 class.

Understanding a Journal Citation

REMEMBER: This is a works cited entry for a journal article. If you need to create a works cited entry for any other type of resource, check your Bedford Handbook for more information on what to include.

If you have a citation and need to find the article, start with the yellow Journal Title section. Enter the name of the periodical into the Periodical List to see where in the library you can access it.

Need a DOI?

CrossRef is a not-for-profit membership organization for scholarly publishing working to make content easy to find, link, cite and assess. Not all DOIs are available through the website but it is a helpful resource.
