Helpful Hints

With four or more authors cite all in the bibliography, but in the note cite only the first author followed by et al.

In the bibliography invert the first and last name of only the first author.

If no page numbers are included then section headings or other types of locating information can be used.

Note that there is a space following the colon before the page numbers.

If using an electronic version of an article a DOI is preferred to a URL, but if using a URL, you must use the address that appears when you are viewing the article, unless there is a shorter more stable one available. (See 14.4-14.6 for more).

See 14.12 for more information on where to put line breaks for URLs or DOIs.
