Q. I am working on a research paper that is due tomorrow evening and two of the articles I am using do not have DOIs. Both of the articles were from dat

APA NURS

Answer

My first question would be, have you double-checked CrossRef Metadata Search, https://search.crossref.org/. If not, you just copy and paste the title of your article and search. If a doi is available, it should show up in the results. (Just make sure it is the same citation you have, i.e. same journal, same volume, etc.)

If you have checked CrossRef and nothing showed up, then strict APA says you put Retrieved from url where the url is the url of the home page of the journal (page 191 and 192 of the APA handbook, 6th ed.). So basically, you google the journal title to find the journal website and then use that url. The idea is that someone who wanted to look up the citation could look for it from the journal homepage even though they might have to pay to actually access the article.
