Start by looking up the article with its complete citation, either from the Journal publisher's homepage, from our Journal Title Database, from our list of Databases, or in our Discovery Search box on our library homepage.
Example using our Discovery Search box:
Start by pasting just the article's title. Switch the search type to Just Articles and by Title. If we have access, it should be in the first few results. Then click on the "Cite" icon for the article citation, and select a citation style from the pull-down menu. If the publisher has registered the DOI (Digital Object Identifier), the DOI should be listed as part of the citation. DOIs should be in the form 10.####/string-of-characters.
You may also try Crossref, and search for the article's title using the "Search Metadata" tab. If the publisher has registered the DOI, the DOI should be listed as part of the citation.
